Absolutely, Positively Not by David LaRochelle
Stephen is working hard to prove to himself that he is definitely not gay. He has checked a book out of the library filled with strategies such as "start hanging out with the guys" and "begin intensive dating". He also follows the suggestion to wear a rubber band around his wrist and snap it whenever he has a thought about something he doesn't want. Despite his best efforts Stephen begins to suspect that he actually is gay and has to begin the process of coming out to his family and friends as well as discovering if he is the only gay teen in his community.
