I wonder if I'm falling away from YA books... I just couldn't feel this one. It felt forced. The plot was okay (older brother gets hooked on drugs, younger brother can't deal, falls in love, jeopardizes new relationship), but it just didn't feel true to me. The main characters felt a connection way too easily, quickly, and while that can indeed happen I just didn't see it here. I hate saying bad things about books. I would rather not do a review than a bad one. So I'll end here and just say this was not one of the best I've read.
