Lots of 80s references woven through a fairly thinly plotted coming-of-age/coming-out novel. The narrator is sympathetic, if annoyingly repetitive. But I laughed or chuckled many times at the classic junior high/high school moments--the author got those dead on. It's not bad for a fluffy read, although the lack of editing and the sloppy, ugly typesetting were a bit distracting. (But of course that's the price I pay for being in my profession!) Ultimately it was a good reminder of how homophobia affects the under-18 set--it hasn't changed for a lot of people around the U.S. even 20 years later.
