Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx
This love story is for those who want to get out of the "friend zone." This is a deeply original and unconventional novel about a friends-then-lovers affair that happens between two ranch hands one Summer on the range. The bonus with this is that you can watch the movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger afterward. It’s worth it.
