This book was good but it is no walk in the park. It is heavy. One can tell by the description of the book. The story is about a family torn apart by divorce. One brother the younger brother chooses to move with his father to Newport Beach, while the older brother stays with the Mother who has depression. They are both essentially brought up by parents who really are not present for them. The brothers do get together on certain weekends at their father’s home. Partying and drug use goes on. But one troubling weekend, a crime takes place. A very graphic crime that may make this book difficult for some readers to read. The little brother has to make a choice of how to act when he sees disturbing footage of a crime that was videotaped. The books goes on from there. We see how lives are affected and the lasting effects of doing the right thing can haunt a person.
