Read full description of the books Brother, Brother:Perfect indication of how much I like a male character: when I would love for him to date my daughter. It would be an awkward relationship, though, what with his being a fictional character and all, but Brother Grace is just a good guy. Dirt poor, though, and one who has had some tough breaks: Abandoned by his teenaged mother when he was just three and then orphaned completely when she soon thereafter dies in a car crash, he is raised by Mem, a grandmother who teaches him a strong moral code and impeccable manners but who has just lost her long-term battle with cancer.
His drop out/GED buddy Cole, who also works with him at the rest home, leaves his five-year-old brother Jack with Brother and Mem before disappearing on a bender. In addition to the morals and manners, Brother also has a fabulous dog. Really, I have cats, but I wanted to adopt Trooper, the wonder dog, who actually saves a child at a rest stop from being struck by a car. He senses when bad stuff is happening, very intuitive canine. Brother also has a Buick from an old neighbor friend, but the Buick itself is pretty darn old, so it doesn't even quite make it to that rest stop where Trooper becomes a four-legged hero and where Kit introduces herself.
If brother is good boyfriend material, then Kit is a great BFF: smart, loyal, practical, and caring. She takes Brother, Jack, and Trooper under her wing and gets them where they need to be to find out how Brother has a twin out there, the son of a North Carolina senator, no less and currently in rehab. The place with all the answers is Winter Island, pretty much owned by the Grayson family. There, Brother meets Lucy, the senator's step daughter and tries to find out how and when to meet Gabriel, a boy who looks just like him but doesn't sound a bit like him.
It might be tough for a small-town boy to deal with the rich, powerful, and sneaky, but with good sense and good friends, old and new, Brother might just get to the bottom of what happened to his mother and even to his grandmother so many years before and how Winter Island fits into his past, present, and possibly his future.
It's a quiet story of relationships, a little nature versus nurture, and what really matters. Brother is learning to identify what matters and to hold onto it, if he can.
Read information about the authorBecause I can't always remember titles or I forget to email when people are kind enough to ask "What are you reading?"

And I only review or archive books I like or love. Literature is a wildly subjective enterprise; one person's least favorite book may be a book someone else loves best of all.
