Oscar is misunderstood. Ever since his mother died, he’s been disrespected and bullied by his family, and he seeks refuge in his art. Vance is a popular athlete and wishes his brother would just loosen up and be cool. It was hard enough to deal with their mother’s death without Oscar getting all emotional. Vance just wants to throw himself into partying, to live.
But when their father’s alcoholism sends him into liver failure, the two boys must come face-to-face with their demons-and each other-if they are going to survive an uncertain future. – Goodreads.com
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
If you have ever experienced the loss of a loved one, a guardian, parent, or a dysfunctional family. If you have ever seen someone in the grips of alcoholism. If you’ve ever felt like an outsider in your own family… you’re going to relate very strongly to this novel.
It is heart breaking, frustrating, painful and inspiring.
If we let go of our differences and the anger we hold towards each other that even we don’t understand, life opens up so many opportunities for love and fulfillment.
If you’re looking for a hard road with a happy ending, this book is for you.
