this was a really sweet listen, actually. i think it struck a pretty good balance between regular teen issues and the structural bigotry and oppression liz has had to deal with throughout school (and life, assumedly). it was really nice to hear liz coming into herself. some parts were really frustrating but only by design, because i felt so much for liz -- the forced outing didnt sit well with me at all (pretty much everything about rachel felt that way). the ending was lovely, although i kinda wished for a little epilogue just cause!
