I liked this book. It was narrated by Denny, whose older brother suffers from autism. The story takes place over a summer and we learn, from Dennys point of view, what it is like to live with an autistic sibling, a mother obsessed with that sibling and a father who drinks to hide his unhappiness. The author takes dark subjects, alcoholism and autism, and puts the reader in Dennys head so that we can see his world as it relates to his dysfunctional family.
