Answers in the Pages

Donovan is excited to read The Adventurers, the new book Mr Howe has assigned his class. But before he can dig in, his mother gets her hands on it—and she is not excited by what she reads. Soon the whole town is freaking out about whether the book’s two main characters are gay, and Donovan is caught in the middle.

Rick and Oliver are the two main characters in The Adventurers. They’re trying to stop an evil genius from acquiring the Doomsday Code and destroying life as we know it.

Meanwhile, Gideon and Roberto have been paired up on their own book project, which draws them closer and closer together…

With Answers in the Pages, bestselling author David Levithan delivers a bold, fun story about taking action (whether it’s against book censors or killer alligators), being brave (in love and in adventure) and standing up for what’s right, no matter the circumstances.

Praise for David Levithan
andAnswers in the Pages

‘Levithan’s warm and conversational voice is likely to disarm even the most hard-hearted, drawing them into the loving worlds of his carefully observed characters.’

‘The brilliance of this novel is how Levithan flips the script on traditional portal fiction by not having the narrator be the person traveling between worlds…A welcome world for anyone coming out of the closet—or even a maybe-magical dresser.’

‘Compelling…Answers in the Pages is an uplifting portrait of the strength it takes to fight for your story. It’s an important book with an essential perspective on a vital, timeless question.’

‘A timely and relevant release…Provides a window into a uniquely transitory age [and] ultimately celebrates the messiness of being human.’

‘[A] nuanced novel that centres moments of self-discovery, working themes of acceptance, bravery, friendship and love into each of the three threads.’

Answers in the Pages will empower young readers…Accessible, engaging…A celebration of quiet queerness, of self-discovery, of allyship, of the way books can open our world and spark adventures both real and imagined, of the fact that, whether we love our same-gender friends as friends or more than friends, we deserve to have our stories told and read and shared.’
