Adam is ecstatic to be reunited. At first, Julian seems like the boy he once knew. He’s still kindhearted. He still writes stories and loves picture books meant for little kids. But as they spend more time together, Adam realizes that Julian is keeping secrets, like where he hides during the middle of the day, and what’s really going on inside his house. Adam is determined to help him, but his involvement could cost both boys their lives… @goodreads
OMG!!!! This book was so horrible and so wonderful at the same time!
I loved all of these characters with the exception of a few choice adults.
Julian's freaking uncle, Russell!
For him I wanted to add all of the hulk smash, blowing up, gun shooting gifs I could find but I kept it nice. You will hate his guts if you read this wonderful book and find out what all he puts Julian through. I CAN'T EVEN, PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The book is told through Julian and Adam. It's not confusing just their different thoughts as they are the main characters. When Julian was young he lived with Adam for awhile until the evil uncle claimed him. Adam's mom tried to keep him but, you know how that goes.
Anyway, they are in high school together. Adam is about to graduate and go on to college with his friends. Julian is younger and just getting by in school.
I really loved Adam's friends too. All of the main ones were super nice. Charlie with his anger issues was my favorite but when you read him, you will know what I mean. And when they all took Julian in as a friend and were so nice to him (even the ones that acted like a butt to him at first) it made me feel all mushy inside. It was so sweet!
It was nice to read a book about good kids for once and not all of the bullies. The bullies in the book were some adults.
That's all really. I loved it so much and the end had me holding my breath! I got this book from the library overdrive but I hope to buy it in a few weeks. This is one I want to go on my shelves to read again and again.
