She eventually comes to terms with him being gay, and gets involved in Alcoholics Anonymous when her drinking gets out of control.The group helps her get some perspective on her own life and cope with her problems.TJ makes several attempts to re-friend Noli, but she’s pretty adamant that she wants nothing to do with him.It ends a bit unevenly – Noli and TJ meet up and Noli tells him that they can’t be friends ever because she still loves him.Noli does eventually come to a better understanding of what it means to be gay, though – initially she thinks it’s some kind of choice that TJ’s made, but she discovers that it’s just the way that he was born.
The storyline is a bit obvious – hopefully kids today are more comfortable and accustomed to talking about homosexuality and they’ll see this *surprise* coming from the get go.But if they aren’t and they don’t, the book does paint a more positive picture of what it means to gay.It is, however, a pretty short treatment, and there are many other books that do a better job of talking about it and teasing out the different perspectives.Still, for an introduction and a place to start (and a short fast read), this one isn’t so bad.
