This was a fun read throughout. The book is just the right length for the story, and the story itself is interesting and enjoyable. There were delightful notes of irony Karl punched his ex for inadvertently outing him and now he's the one in a relationship with someone deeply in the closet. Further, the reason that Paul is afraid to come out is because he was bullied by Karl as a child on account of his stutter and knows what it's like to be socially ostracized! and the story develops realistically while at the same time being rather sweet.
