In Japan, BL is the "modern" term for Shounenai, deffinition meaning "Boys love."
No matter how you spell it, english or kanji, you will get NOTHING on shounenai on a Japanese search engine, save dead sites refurring to retro mangas from the 70s & 80s.

Bl means Boys Love, it is often is used as another word for yaoi, which involves manga or anime. The book would most likely have the abriviation BL on it. Otherwise Warning this contains Gay things.
