GOODREADS SYNOPSIS :
When Adam Blake lands the best elective ever in his senior year, serving as an aide to the school psychologist, he thinks he’s got it made. Sure, it means a lot of sitting around, which isn’t easy for a guy with ADHD, but he can’t complain, since he gets to spend the period texting all his friends. Then the doctor asks him to track down the troubled freshman who keeps dodging her, and Adam discovers that the boy is Julian—the foster brother he hasn’t seen in five years.
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…
A heartfelt read. It brought tears in my eyes, like every page did. I mean it was such a moving read.
I cannot explain the ache that went through me while reading this.
Never have ever been so touched by the words. It was as if everything that went through Jullian was happening to me.
I ‘m sure , it would really have taken a lot of effort for the author to write this. I can understand the pain she might have went through thinking about it, writing it.
Everything was just perfect.
Every emotion, every feeling.
It revolved around so many profound themes.
Importance of friendship ; good friends really help you get out of the trauma. They really do.
Loss: it deals the effect of loosing someone around which your life was based ones.
That part is the most touching.
Mental health : The torture, the trauma which a person goes through builds a fear inside him. It shakes him all together.
It can never be fully recovered unless you lose the memory of your past.
It was the height of torture.
It felt like as if a knife was placed inside me cutting my heart down. It was so powerful. I mean cannot imagine some one suffering this much. But people do suffer.
People you meet in life , either make your life enjoyable or horrible.
They come in colours.
I recommend this book to everyone but I want to make one thing very clear for those who are very sensitive about the following themes to not read it, because it will depress you to the core.
