A single stroke can change your world.Xander Fairchild can't stand people in general and frat boys in particular, so when he's forced to spend his summer working on his senior project with Skylar Stone, a silver-tongued Delta Sig with a trust fund who wants to make Xander over into a shiny new image, Xander is determined to resist. He came to idyllic, Japanese culture-soaked Benten college to hide and make manga, not to be transformed into a corporate clone in the eleventh hour.Skylar's life has been laid out for him since before he was born, but all it takes is one look at Xander's artwork, and the veneer around him begins to crack. Xander himself does plenty of damage too. There's something about the antisocial artist's refusal to yield that forces Skylar to acknowledge how much his own orchestrated future is killing him slowly...as is the truth about his gray-spectrum sexuality, which he hasn't dared to speak aloud, even to himself.Through a summer of art and friendship, Xander and Skylar learn more about each other, themselves, and their feelings for one another. But as their senior year begins, they must decide if they will part ways and return to the dull futures they had planned, or if they will take a risk and leap into a brightly colored future--together.

Mehso-so

Un libro che mi ha deluso. La storia purtroppo è fin troppo lunga e perde la sua "magia" focalizzandosi su dettagli spesso inutili al fine della storia e che non portano contenuti, anche volendo caratterizzare al meglio i personaggi purtroppo si cade ben presto nella noia e molte parti potevano essere tagliate. Non ho amato il modo in cui viene affrontata la sessualità dei due protagonisti il tutto fin troppo superficiale per i miei gusti

"What's wrong with me?" "Nothing is wrong with you" "There's so much wrong with me" Skylar clung to him. "I don't feel like I fit anywhere. I don't know what I'm supposed to do. How I'm supposed to be" "You fit with me" Xander tucked him in tighter, as if to prove his statement "You'll always fit with me"

"People can see us" "That's my hope, yes" Skylar pulled Xander a little closer to him. "Is that all right?" Xander's heart felt like a drum, its beats reverberating through his body "If you claim me in front of my friends?" "If I claim you in front of anyone. Everyone. I like the way it makes you blush. But I also simply like you. And I want everyone to know."

"This world is a nightmare full of pain. You found someone you can make beauty with. Don't question how it happens or worry you aren't doing it the right way. Call yourself demi or ace or gray, or refuse to take a name. It's all up to you. Call yourself the man who love Xander Fairchild, the grumpiest, most antisocial asshole who ever lived. The one who made Xander love someone back"

"I want to date you, Xander. I want to help you with your project, and sit for your paintings, and write a manga with you, and I want to date you"

"Hey... no more dates with people for favors, okay?"
"No more dates for favors"
Skylar squeezed Xander's hand gently.
"Can... Can I have one with you, though?" Xander's heart fluttered, grew wings, and sailed lazily into the sky.
"You can have as many you want"

"I just want to find a way to be with you that doesn't hurt you. Because I didn't realize it until Unc asked. No, no one's ever given me what I wanted" He opened his eyes, turning his head to look at the space beside him, where Xander should have been. "Until you. You give me what I want without my ever asking for it-and almost always without giving you anything in return. (...) But what if I can't give you what you want from me?"

"I know you said you don't like people, but you should have some people"
"All they do is let me down"
"I won't let you down"

"What about me? Do you hate being friends with me?"
Xander blushed and looked down at his lap
"No. You're different"
"Why? How?"
" I don't know. You just are"
His blush became so hot his face felt like flame

"This is the magic of art. I can love or hate my own work, but the viewer is who turns it into somenthing. I made that painting, but you gave it life. Art isn't real until it's viewed" He grimaced, lowering his sandwich, but even as he retreated, he still had inner fire "This is where I always get it wrong. I know I need to connect to people in order to understand my own art, but... I'll be honest. I hate people"
