SpoilerCooper Clay turns out to be gay, which as an LGBTQ+ person I loved.
The characters aren’t perfect, which made them very lovable to me. I’m not usually a romance person, but there were a few couples that formed and even some that broke up. The ending was very predictable, which is what knocked it down to a 3.75, but if you’re more interested in the characters’ journey than the actual ending, this would be great for you.
