The Lovereading4Kids comment

Two brothers, Italy and love…it’s a potent combination. Elijah and Danny really don’t get on. They seem to have nothing except their shared blood in common. But, when their parents dispatch them to Italy they find they can be closer than they had imagined. Full of insight about relationships and their complexities.

Synopsis

Are We There Yet? by David Levithan

Elijah is completely mellow and his brother Danny is completely not, and they can barely tolerate one another. Soon, they're forced to spend countless hours together. But then Elijah meets Julia, and the brothers aren't together nearly as much. And then Julia meets Danny and all three of them are in a mixed-up, world of brothers, Italy, and love.

About the Author

David Levithan

David Levithan won the Lambda Literary Award for his debut novel Boy Meets Boy, but is probably best known for his collaborations with John Green (Will Grayson, Will Grayson) and Rachel Cohn (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which was also made into a film).

As well as being a New York Times best-selling author, David is also a highly respected children’s book editor, whose list includes many luminaries of children’s literature, including Garth Nix, Libba Bray and Suzanne Collins. He lives and works in New York.

David says

‘I find it downright baffling to write about myself, which is why I’m considering it somewhat cruel and usual to have to write this brief bio and to update it now and then. The factual approach (born ’72, Brown ’94, first book ’03) seems a bit dry, while the emotional landscape (happy childhood, happy adolescence – give or take a few poems – and happy adulthood so far) sounds horribly well-adjusted. The only addiction I’ve ever had was a brief spiral into the arms of diet Dr Pepper, unless you count My So-Called Life episodes as a drug. I am evangelical in my musical beliefs.’
