Although the story is bare-bones short, the characters are well-drawn, and there is room for nuance.
"Was he . . . you know?" Bella doesn't know if Dominic was gay or not, but she knows he was bullied. And she knows the adults who could have helped didn't because of some stupid policy. Now Dominic's dead. It's never been Bella's thing to stand up for a cause, but for some reason, this fight has become her fight.
