I watched this movie a few months ago. I thought it was great, but I also feel like explaining why would be spoilery, and I am spoiler-averse. Anyone who finds the premise even slightly interesting, just go with it, it pays off.

It's a really good comic, and a pretty good movie adaptation, but it's been a while since I've seen either, so my memory for additional details is weak.

Even though I caught on to what was going on (not quite the details, but the gist, and I won't spoil it here), when the reveal happened, it still hit me like a ton of bricks (and pulled up some unresolved things from my life that I hadn't realized were still there). I was never a teenage girl, but I found the high school interactions believable, in their movie-fantastic way.
