SummaryKathy Colton can t stand her brother, Brett. Her family talks as if he were perfect! All Kathy knows for sure is that Brett is dead. He died of leukemia when he was sixteen and she was only two. But when Kathy turns sixteen, she discovers her brother s hidden journal - a journal written especially for her - and learns about the brother she never knew. At the same time, Kathy is mortified by an assignment to tutor the popular high school quarterback Jason West, a football jock who, even worse, is a Mormon. 


The Book in 3 Words: Beautiful, Emotional, Incredible


Thoughts: This is one of my favorite books EVER. It is such a sweet story that just pulls you in. Kathy's voice is incredible. You just get to know Kathy, her faults and flaws, her desires and her strengths. I loved the great flavor that you see in her. 


Kathy has grown up as the baby of the family and her family just can't stop talking about her older brother that she never knew. As she learns more about him through reading the journal he wrote specifically for her it was just so sweet. Because you get a whole new character through Brett just reading about his own struggles. It's all fiction but it's so beautiful. I cried and one point. I loved Jason. He was a great guy who I really enjoyed reading about. He had character you got to know him and as you see him go through struggles you just feel for him. Same with all the other characters. They were so well crafted. 


Kay wrote a superb book. You want to laugh and cry and just feel happy when you read this book. I flowed so well and was written in a way that just kept you interested. I was sad it was over and I really can not think of anything I didn't like. Highly Recommended as a wonderful contemp read.
