T his book is different. If you like a conventional story with a beginning, middle and end and a juicy plot then this davic for you.
The Realm of Possibility
It is more of a collection of little snippets which make a story. Each piece connects with each other piece, everything interlocks. Each holds five stories. Each is told by a different character in a different way.
Most of the book is written as prose in verse: Some are one long poem, some are ten short ones, some are only a few lines long. But tthe one is necessary for the story. Like chapters in a book, each person’s view is needed for the tale, a tale of teenage relationships in one high school. Everything is possible in “The Realm of Possibility.
THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY by David Levithan | Kirkus Reviews
Boys and girls love each other, or maybe nobody at all. But they all have a story to llevithan, something to say, and it all matters. He’s not afraid to go where other writers may be afraid to put their daviv. He knows his voice: There’s no guesswork with the emotions of his characters because he has been there. He has been a gay teenager in high school so his characters are the real deal. They are raw and convincing, sad and sweet, anonymous and loved.
It’s hard to sum up The Realm of Possibility because you have to read it to know how you feel about it. I love how unconventional it is, for how I’ve never picked up two of his books and thought they were similar. He is an experimenter. An explorer, seeking out new ways to write, the best ways to show off the individual voices of the characters.
I’m not saying to go out and read this straight away because I know that David O books are an acquired taste. I know very few people who enjoy reading them but there are a whole load of people who have never bothered. If you like to change things up a bit, to try something new then pick up this book.

It is unique, a niche book. And I hope it stays that way. Being a Levithan fan is a special thing. Want to tell the world about a book you’ve read? Join the site and send us your review!
