Erik & Isabelle are typical high school sophomores. Erik runs on the school's cross country team while Isabelle prefers to work on the latest project for their drama class. Like most students, they hate homework and love school vacations. But unlike the other students at Foresthill High, they're both gay.

In Erik & Isabelle: Sophomore Year at Foresthill High, the best friends start off the school year with a bang. The twosome, along with Isabelle's newest friend Maxine, make a pact to find some way to make their sophomore year amazing. After deciding to hold a race for charity, the three friends launch themselves into preparations, not realizing the year will be more unforgettable than they think.

But all is not well in the town of Foresthill. Erik still hasn't told his parents about his true sexuality, afraid of what his conservative military father will think. When his boyfriend Jeremy commits suicide because of depression, Erik must find a way to not only deal with his grief, but who he is. Afraid to tell his parents about the true nature of his relationship with Jeremy, Erik slips into depression himself.

Meanwhile, Isabelle and Maxine decide it is time to promote tolerance in Foresthill. Using her talent for the dramatic, Isabelle concocts a scheme to help other teens be more accepting of each other. Can she pull off the plan while helping Erik overcome his pain? Will Erik ever be able to come out of the closet? Will Maxine ever be able to tell Isabelle that she loves her? And why is the school's star quarterback following Erik around? You'll just have to read the book to find out.

The best thing about this book was the fact that it dealt with the problems every teen faces in high school. Erik & Isabelle may be gay, but they struggle through homework, cliques, relationships and uncertainty just like other teens. Short chapters and an easy writing style add to the merits of the book, making it a fairly quick read. Although it can be read without reading the first one (Erik & Isabelle: Freshman Year at Foresthill High) , I recommend reading the other one first so some of the situations make more sense.

Recommended for high school age teens, especially those interested in GLBT books. A caution to younger readers: this book does contain some sexual scenes, although they are not overly graphic.

I enjoyed the characters and the story in SOPHOMORE YEAR... Erik struggling with an absent military father and a passive mother... Isabelle thriving as her art is expanding... Both navigating the confusing waters of young love. The premise is a great one and I look forward to the rest of the series. In many ways, I feel that Miss Wallace is truly compassionate with her characters, she writes from a place of truth, either her own or her students. I know this. because this story is similar to my own coming out story. My biggest criticism of this novel is that it ends at New Year's Eve... It's an incredibly romantic scene, but am I going to miss out on the next six months until they go back to school? Kim, don't do that to me...

i am forever facinated with the rave reviews these books are recieving. having read over 30 books on emergent female queerness aimed at adolescents, these easily fall into the most preachy and condesending books. but, at least people are enjoying them, and it is great that there are a wider variety of GLBT teen books becoming available; even if some of them are extremely conservative.

what facinates me is how every single reference to drinking is accompanied by 'badness.' not that i am encouraging teenage binge drinking, but honestly, it's hardly realistic. but, i digress.

the writing of this book is far, far better than that of erik and isabelle freshman, and at least the author is attempting to tackle real issues that effect glbt youth, such as teenage suicide. the characters are growing, although in a highly contrived and didactic manner, and i find the preoccupation with christianity a little confusing. but, like i said, still good to see that there are more books like this out there.

How long have we waited for someone to come along and provide a positive book series for young people dealing with their sexuality and the many issues of 'growing up'? Finally, it is here! In the GLBT community in particular, most teens have very little material to relate to, other than magazines, that share their journey of life that most have traveled when dealing with their sexual orientation and being and feeling 'different'. E&I gives young people hope; that they are not alone and that there are others 'just like them' out in the world, dealing with the same issues, wanting the same things in life. It reminds us that ultimately we all simply want someone to love us just as we are, and someone to love. We believe this book will save lives, allowing young people to know that there are others out there who care and are sharing their journey.

What an amazing book - even better than Freshman Year if that's possible. Finding the balance to deal with real teen and gay teen issues - sex, suicide, peer pressure, drugs and alcohol - and yet offer the wisdom of perspective is an incredible balancing act that Kim Wallace does with humor and grace. Never condescending or preachy, she is still able to elucidate some of the positive changes young energy can make. I have sent one to all the teenagers in my life.

When I picked up this book I found it almost impossible to put down. E&I draws the reader in and keeps them wanting more. I enjoyed watching the characters develop through out the book. The author doesn't shy away from the hard topics that GLBT youth (and adults) are dealing with. I know that this book will have a huge impact on GLBT people of all ages and I think that all people should read this book. I can't wait for the next book to come out.
