English is not his favorite subject.  And now they are studying Shakespeare.  When Mrs. Porter has Rob and Milena act out a scene, Rob can't believe his luck.  He's had a crush on Milena for years.  And now he gets to be with her for this assignment.  But here's the catch.  Rob will play Rosalind and Milena will play Orlando.  In full costume!!  Rob can't believe it.  But something happens when he puts on the dress and the makeup.  He finds he really enjoys it.  Can this mean he is gay?  And if he is, why does he still have a crush on Milena?
