This is a cleverly written book, and the readers are outstanding. I wish Tiny's musical were real so I could see it now that I've heard some of the songs. The book looks at the problems of love and friendship in a high school setting. However I have to warn conservative readers that one of the book's threads is about homosexual love. It's tastefully done, but it's there. If that's going to bother you, read one of the authors' other books.
