The age of consent in California is 18 for males and females. I'm not sure yet how it plays out with both of them as minors, but I believe Amos. It must be a legal violation. (One web site says that with two year's age difference it is a misdemeanor; three years difference would be a felony. - It's possible that she's almost 15 and he's barely 16 - I don't know, or even how the age difference is exaclty quantified.)

As for missing facts, here's a firinstance that I left out: The boy's dad supposedly died of AIDS when the boy was young. That might mess with a youngster's head.
