"...a sensitive portrayal of sexual awakening and queer first love... Van de Vendel's compact, deeply introspective tale follows a sedate pace, and the narrative's subdued approach to conflict allows the boys' tentative identity exploration to flourish sans traumatic upheaval." -- Publishers Weekly

"Originally published in 1999 and translated from the Dutch, I'm thrilled to recommend the best gay romance I've read since Boyfriend Material! This swoon-worthy classic has been a hit across the pond for good reason! It's tender, intense, heartbreaking and exhilarating. In this novel, teens fall in love at summer camp. Their love story makes for an amazing read." -LitHub, Jacque, Books Are Magic
