Have just read this book for our book club. Once you realise that it's written by an American male, set in America and get used to the 'strong language' you are off on a Roller Coaster ride. As a male I (think) I can relate to how Doug handled his situation. It made me laugh out loud and made me sad, I think the saddest part was when his Dad "took control" in the Hospital when Doug was shot, he just kicked back in to his Doctor role. Jonathan Tropper made all his characters come to life, his relationship with his sisters was realistic, (having two myself, I now) also how he handled Russ, showed how much he loved and cared about him. It was a most enjoyable book.

I would have at least liked to know the author's style of writing! Not much help just giving me just your thoughts and feelings on the events occurring in the novel.

Apart from the title, what is this book actually on? This review gives me no indication about anything that is in the book, so please add a lot more information. Also, how much I can expect to pay for it and from where.
