Three years ago, Bear McKenna’s mother took off for parts unknown with her new boyfriend, leaving Bear to raise his six-year-old brother Tyson, aka the Kid. Somehow they’ve muddled through, but since he’s totally devoted to the Kid, Bear isn’t actually doing much living—with a few exceptions, he’s retreated from the world, and he’s mostly okay with that. Until Otter comes home.
Otter is Bear’s best friend’s older brother, and as they’ve done for their whole lives, Bear and Otter crash and collide in ways neither expect. This time, though, there’s nowhere to run from the depth of emotion between them. Bear still believes his place is as the Kid’s guardian, but he can’t help thinking there could be something more for him in the world... something or someone.

But everyone loves it and it supposed to be funny, so. Everyone who loves this book (which is practically everyone) shou...
1st read - 11 January to 13 January (4 stars)2nd reread/listen - 21 March to 7 April 2016 (5 stars)Wow!! I really loved the audio of this. So much so that I need to add another star and add to my favourites shelf for 2016. Funnily enough the things I wasn't mad on, Otter's flashback in particular, r...
of course I picked up my e-reader and figured I'd read for a few minutes until I could get back to sleep next thing I know it's nearly 7 a.m. and I'm only about 4 or 5 pages shy of finishing the book. Needless to say I'm not the perkiest kitten in the litter right now. This combined with the fact ...
I know most people love this book, but it was just way too much melodrama for me. And the audiobook narration didn't help - this book had lots of flashbacks and imaginary scenes playing out in the MC's head, and they were hard to distinguish when listening. Also, although the narrator did distinguis...
