Set in a world where all sexualities are accepted, and the captain of the football team is a transsexual named Infinite Darlene, this is the sweet story of a boy named Paul finding love with another boy, with all the giddiness and excitement that comes with a new relationship when you're a teenager.
It's kind of like chic-lit, bubbly and fun, with no worries about coming out, no angst other than whether the object of affection returns it. It made me wistful that the world isn't more like this for real.

Meen Gawd, I can't even imagine what a world where all sexualities are accepted would feel like, and especially what a difference that would make in high school! (My same-sex high school experience was totally shame-filled and mortifying. I'm STILL carrying that baggage around!)

Jackie "the Librarian" I'm so sorry, Mindy. One of my best friends is gay, and he was so closeted, he couldn't even admit it to himself until he was in his 30's.

I kinda hate people who had a happy high school experience.
