It was pretty good. There's a bit of coarse language and violence as well as a teen learning about his sexuality (not personally objectionable, but could trigger some parents). I appreciate that teen romantic interest, gay or straight, doesn't usually end with any kind of happily ever after, but I wish that they had ended up friends if nothing else. I can imagine a lot of people reading this and seeing (if not understanding) that just being gay means being different which is hard to deal with in today's society.
