Some people spend their whole lives looking for the right partner, but Nate Schaper was lucky: he found his soulmate while he was still in high school. In the eight months since their cautious flirtations became a real relationship, Nate and Adam have been inseparable. Even when local kids take their homophobia to brutal levels, Nate is wholly undaunted. In J.H. Trumble’s Don’t Let Me Go, things start to get tricky when Adam graduates and takes an off-Broadway job in New York. Everything should be fine, because Adam and Nate are rock solid. Right?
Nate is suddenly insecure, especially after catching sight of Nate’s shirtless roommate during a Skype chat. As his certainty continues to flicker, he starts a blog to vent his frustrations and unwittingly sparks controversy, becoming the center of a school scandal and drawing ire and support in equal amounts.
The plot thickens even further when the attention of a new boy (who’s looking for more than a little guidance) forces him to confront who and what he really wants. This is a witty, beautifully written account of the trials and travails of long-distance love and the tempestuousness of young love.

Excellent read that captivated me and held me to the end. So many times it was frustrating and Nate's angst and need were irritating...but given the fact he was a victim of a hate crime made him more tolerable. I don't always have to like the characters in a book, even the main character, if it's as well written and entwined with other interesting characters with a good story to tell.
