Lance has always known he was gay, but he's never had a real boyfriend. Sergio is bisexual, but his only real relationship was with a girl. When the two of them meet, they have an instant connection--but will it be enough to overcome their differences? Allie's been in a relationship with a guy for the last two years--but when she meets Kimiko, she can't get her out of her mind. Does this mean she's gay? Does it mean she's bi? Kimiko, falling hard for Allie, and finding it impossible to believe that a gorgeous girl like Allie would be into her, is willing to stick around and help Allie figure it out. Boyfriends with Girlfriends is Alex Sanchez at his best, writing with a sensitive hand to portray four very real teens striving to find their places in the world--and with each other.

I am barely 50 pages into this book, and I hate it. The Japanese fetishism is so, so gross and it's everywhere. I'm going to finish reading it to see if it gets better.

Lance, at the beginning youre an ass. Everyone else, i really liked you. Plot, meh, but that´s me all the time really. full review later. explores bisexuality well, from two oppositee ends :)
Kind of like cotton candy. A bit substanceless, but sweet. Simple. My first Sanchez.
The problem with this book is all it does is push a lifestyle. I am greatly encouraged by the idea that someone would take the time to write a book for bi-sexual teens, as I'm sure there are a lot of confused teens out there trying to understand themselves.Unfortunately, this book is poorly written...
