Given that this was the second book in the Gay Youth Chronicle series, it could be assumed that Roeder had decided to continue with a sequel to Part 1 - Outfield Menace, as Roeder needed to give a proper ending to Kurt and Angel's relationship.

There were several characters introduced in the book which I had wondered if they were necessary. And they seemed to be too good to be true - all were so willing to welcome a gay youth into their lives. It was painted a little too perfect.

Somehow, Roeder repeated often several lines - for example, Angel's reflection on how nice Jack and his wife were and how nice grandma and her granddaughter were. I did think that somehow grandma would pass away and the little girl would end up with Jack and his wife. However, that did not happen. So, I am still puzzled why they were introduced into the storyline.

Apparently the kids in the town did not learn much. After bullies were arrested for murder, this should have shocked some into hiding. This was not so. New bullies worked with old bullies. Funny. Still, as a fan of Roeder's work, I looked forward for more stories from him. ( )
