This was a good book but the ending could have been better. I loved the two main characters. I liked the writing and story line. loved the diversity in this book. I didn't like the ending and here might be a few spoilers. I thought the main character realizing he was gay was very rushed. I thought that there should have been indications somewhere else in the book instead of him just suddenly realizing he was gay. I didn't like the way his parents told him he was gay. It didn't make enough sense to me as far as some of their reasoning. I also thought it should have been a bigger deal with them being very Catholic.
