The Half of It ★★★

Really sweet, subverts some tropes while calmly sticking to others - which makes it gentle enough to fit within the mould (shy and sensitive kids figuring themselves out) without feeling too indulgent and telling the same stories from the same voices over and over. More teen stories should wrestle with faith a bit - it’s not all-consuming but is present! Belief and bravery is everything when you have no idea what you’re doing with your life yet.
