Some people spend their whole lives looking for the right partner. Nate Schaper found his in high school. In the eight months since their cautious flirting became a real, heart-pounding, tell-the-parents relationship, Nate and Adam have been inseparable. Even when local kids take their homophobia to brutal levels, Nate is undaunted. He and Adam are rock solid. Two parts of a whole. Yin and yang.But when Adam graduates and takes an off-Broadway job in New York--at Nate's insistence--that certainty begins to flicker. Nate's friends can't keep his insecurities at bay, especially when he catches Skyped glimpses of Adam's shirtless roommate. Nate starts a blog to vent his frustrations and becomes the center of a school controversy, drawing ire and support in equal amounts. But it's the attention of a new boy who is looking for more than guidance that forces him to confront who and what he really wants. Tender, thoughtful, and unflinchingly real, Don't Let Me Go is a witty and beautifully written account of young love, long-distance relationships, and learning to follow your heart. "Don't Let Me Go is a charming story. Trumble's love for the characters is evident on every page, and it's contagious." -- Robin Reardon, author of A Secret Edge

There are some issues in this book that, while they didn't bother me, ...
Note: This is more like a rant, not a review.I was going to rate this at least two stars. For Adam. And because for the first 1/3 of this book, I was hooked and absorbed and anticipating another great YA book. So, it was a great beginning.But I rate books mostly on my reading experience, what I'm le...
I liked everything in this book. Absolutely everything. Sure, there were moments I didn't like how the main characters acted, but, what the hell, everyone's got claws. The ending was just perfect, even a little bit too perfect, but I think they all deserved it.4 stars.
