Different for Boys cover

A poignant and moving LGBTQ+ story that explores sexuality and masculinity with a touch of humour, by twice Carnegie Medal-winner and bestselling author Patrick Ness.
Ant Stevenson has many questions, like when did he stop being a virgin? Are there degrees of virginity? And is it different for boys? Especially for boys who like boys? Ant tries to figure out the answers to his questions as he balances his relationships with three very different boys: Charlie, who is both virulently homophobic and yet close friends with Ant; Jack, whose camp behaviour makes him the target of Charlie's rage; and finally Freddie, who just wants Ant to try out for the rugby team. From the bestselling author of the Chaos Walking trilogy comes a timely and important story about inclusivity, prejudice and friendship.

So many boys will be feeling like Ant and will find solace, comfort and support reading this which is really important. * Little Blog of Library Treasures *
You know with a Patrick Ness book that you’re in for a powerful, honest and beautifully written story and Different For Boys had me captivated and reading it all in one sitting… Thought-provoking with an interesting exploration around masculinity, sex and loneliness, Different For Boys is an exceptional read and one I can tell will be helpful to many teenage boys. * Check 'Em Out Books *
