Good. Quite good. Greg is dishonest at times, and isn't a good role model (since when was he ever?). Still mild things they say (jerk, moron). Greg has a mild crush on a high school girl, but, of course he doesn't capture any of her attention nor does he really think about kissing her. He is afraid to go through the men's shower room at the "town's pool", because he doesn't like to see grown men bathing (he likes his own privacy as well). He never says WHAT exactly BOTHERS him, so that's useful. (This story takes place in the summer.) I liked this one, and I think it was very good.
