Not bad. I could see this being made into a small-market teen movie. The decisions and consequences are pretty much in line with that area of inquiry. If the decisions that the main character had to make in the story were a bit more difficult, the consequences a bit more severe, it could have been a contender.

Interesting to get the Jewish perspective, though. I just felt that the conclusion of the story was too easy--the gentile she likes is a bad kisser and somewhat emotionally stunted, the kid next door really isn't a jerk. Comfort food, sure, but not the raw materials for really impactful plotting. The decisions, in essence, made themselves, and no one left the story with a permanent scar.
