Summary

Toby Riester is 16, gay, and searching for his first boyfriend. He discovers many potential candidates - Orlando, a cute 16-year-old Hispanic boy who works with Toby at the Phantom World amusement park; CT, a blond 17-year-old who is obviously gay; and Spike, a well-built 16-year-old from the internet.

Each boy has his own seductive qualities, and each is more than his seems, but one of them is far more dangerous than Toby ever guessed. Orlando finds a girlfriend at Phantom World, but that’s only the beginning of his story. When he meets his girlfriend’s gorgeous twin brother Kerry, his world is turned upside down.

Mackenzie Riester is the athletic younger brother of Toby. He has little respect for his queer big brother and joins with his newfound friend Billy in playing an elaborate practical joke on Toby that becomes perilous.

Phantom World is the story of three very different boys - their triumphs, heartaches, and search for love and acceptance.

Emotional and varied, if slighthly outdated

Liked this a lot. Apparently published in 2004, the book contains more gay-related angs and aggression than many newer queer YA books, but somehow the overall mood was still positive and exiting. Couldn't help sympathizing with the three main characters. Anthony Rodriguez's voice and enthusiastic reading was wonderful, especially as Toby.
