Being Gay and Out in High School

A friend of mine told me about this book, recommended it and said it was very powerful. Neither Matt nor I have read it, but we were wondering if anybody here has read it and can comment on it. Since neither of us are still in high school, we're not that compelled to buy it. But, it does sound like an important book for teens who are in high school and gay.

Here's the blurb:

What is it like to be "out" in high school today? Is homophobia still rampant, or have things changed? How do the reactions of students, teachers, administrators, and families affect the out gay student?

A Vigil for Joe Rose is a collection of stories told with empathy and humour about the experience of being out in high school. As a unified collection, these eight short stories and a novella chart the journey of the main characters from first coming out to their growth into confident young gay men, and the challenges, triumphs, and losses along the way.
