I would not want to be in Amir's position. The poor guy is struggling with coming out to his parents, who are Muslim. And since his classmate is blackmailing him he's put in a position where when he can't bring himself to tell them. So he chooses to run away instead, which naturally has consequences he couldn't imagine. This preview manages to be both sweetly amusing and heartbreaking - teenagers can be cruel, and can blow things out of proportion, but Amir is in a difficult position irregardless.
