Well he pretends to date a girl named Mackenzie Okay he does actually date the girl but it was just awkward and wrong They were actually best friends too but that's not why it was awkward it was because he liked guys and it was gross to kiss girls So yeah that kind of awkwardThroughout the story I learned that people in this town suck donkey balls They were so cruel for no reason Like can you all please get a day job or something and leave other people alone? Why does it matter who or what they love? Well it shouldn't and everyone should mind their own damn business Love is love bitches respect that shitOther than that this book had it's cute moments and it definitely flew by for me
