David LaRochelle - Absolutely Positively Not

Absolutely Positively Not

Author: David LaRochelle

  • AGES 12 - 14 
  • Genre Young Adult
Steven's a 16-year-old boy with two obsessions: sex and getting his driving license. The problem is, Steven's not thinking girls when he's thinking sex. Could he be — don't say it — gay? Steven sets out to get in touch with his inner he-man with Healthy Heterosexual Strategies such as "Start Hanging Out with the Guys," and "Begin Intensive Dating." But are Steven's tactics going to straighten him out, or leave him all twisted up?Absolutely hilarious. Positively sidesplitting. But absolutely, positively not gay!

"A touching, sometimes hilarious coming-out story... The wry, first-person narrative is wonderful." — Booklist, starred review

"Funny, warm-hearted, with a cast of quirky yet recognizable characters... LaRochelle's first book provides a nice counterpoint to less gentle, more tension-filled coming-out stories, making it a good addition for a younger audience." — Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Will entertan readers no matter which team they play for." — Kirkus Reviews
