I've been hesitant to get this book for months, but I finally decided to take the plunge. It was so worth it.
There are several "interesting" supporting characters that twist through the main plot of Jarrod and Mark, two jocks vying for a coveted Center Forward position on their new high school's soccer team. One of those supporting characters is Dylan, an over the top out and proud exuberant gay boy who is an open book when it comes to his social skills and he's a Hoot. His special way to "get along" with the Jocks is well.... inventive, and laugh out loud sometimes. I think most guys who have been out for a while know someone who might remind them somewhat of a Dylan. He's also supportive, honest and says what he feels.
I like the character development, the competition, and Jarrod's unwavering support to try and help Mark, his always slightly better competition, with the dark mental state he falls into. I really enjoyed this book and plan to listen to it again. It's not only frequently funny, but emotional, sad at times and then uplifting. Sometimes Mark's actions are temporarily confusing, but for me it was a joy to experience and I was very satisfied at the end. Also a very big plus, the Narrator did a great job with the voices.
