It had a lot of things one should not like. Too many tears/crying, loads and loads of talking, head hopping. And still, the story is sweet, I could not put it down. A classic friends who become lovers story.
It deals mostly with Bryce being unable to get out of the closet were Zac had gone out of it with a bang the school year before.
One m-f scene with an ex gf, not shown though until afterwards. I would have liked to see her back later in the story.
