Though I think it is important for topics of this nature to be discussed and explored in a classroom I did not totally enjoy this book. I found some of the characters and scenes (the gym teacher taking the fall for Grady) to have been unrealistic and eventually they became irritating. I did like how there was a wide range of responses to Grady when she came out of the closet tho because I feel as tho in real life that is probably the way it would be. I feel as though this book did a good job detailing and explaining the struggles a young adult growing up in Grady's situation would go through.
