tough love: high school confidential

Brian is a shy high school teenager who is exploring the idea of coming out to friends and family.  When he meets another gay teen at his school he finds a kindred spirit who he can be himself around.

The idea behind the story is great.  Brian is struggling with being gay in what seems like a small town.  Afraid of what people will say and already somewhat of a loner he's reluctant to come out to the world.  From what I understand Abby Denson first published this as comic strips in a magazine so maybe that's why I felt like there wasn't enough meat to this story.  While the story was okay, the artwork was so blah.  It just didn't feel like there was a lot of work put into this book.
