Bitty is heading into his junior year of college and is in a relationship with Jack. But they face new challenges and must deal with a distance relationship. They also have to decide how they want to reveal their relationship to their friends, family, teammates, and the world. 

This was an adorable ending! I couldn’t put this comic down once I started it and while it was very emotional, I was still smiling the whole time I read it. Bitty and Jack are just two amazing and adorable characters who were great together. Their constant support of each other through everything life threw at them was perfect. I love a strong relationship. 

Bitty really grew in this volume. He learns to stand for himself as a leader and help new players find their place. I loved the adorable scenes with him going crazy baking because it just made me love him even more. Bitty and Jack’s journey about coming out was very emotional and scary. I just wanted to reach through the pages and hug them every time. 

This was an amazing comic that showed amazing growth of characters and their big life decisions. It has been a great journey to follow Bitty through his college years and start to establish himself as an adult. While their story has ended, I know these two will continue to have their HEA and be successful.
