You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan
I think that teens in the LGBT community will enjoy this book. Set in San Fransisco during the week before the Gay Pride parade, two teens struggling with various issues meet and become a big part of each other's lives. Mark and Kate are both at crossroads in their lives and they meet one another just as things seem to be falling apart. Mark is in love with a boy who does not love him back and Kate is about to meet the girl of her dreams, but is having relationship issues with her best friend and is confused about what to do about college. I felt like a whole lot happened in the one week setting of the book with very little parental supervision and I was surprised that there was no mention of high school graduation although it was their last week of their last year of school. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
