I picked this up because I thought the author might be the same guy who wrote The Lover's Dictionary (which I want to read). It was awful. Nothing was realistic; it felt like a Brit writing about American high school experience after watching Canadian teen soaps. There is no high school that I know of that has that many clubs/people/extra curricular activities and yet everyone knows each other. All the characters (except Tony's parents) were either gay, bi, or amazingly understanding and accepting...including everyone in high school and in town. The quarterback was a transvestite and no one minded except the one other football player who wanted to have sex with him. Overall it was funny a few times, a quick easy read, but not very interesting and completely unbelievable.
