For sixteen years, Daisy has been good. A good daughter, helping out with her autistic younger brother uncomplainingly. A good friend, even when her best friend makes her feel like a third wheel. When her parents announce they’re sending her brother to an institution—without consulting her—Daisy’s furious, and decides the best way to be a good sister is to start being bad. She quits jazz band and orchestra, slacks in school, and falls for bad-boy Dave.
But one person won’t let Daisy forget who she used to be: Irish exchange student and brilliant musician Cal. Does she want the bad boy or the prodigy? Should she side with her parents or protect her brother? How can she know when to hold on and when—and how—to let go?
This book had a lot of emotions for me, growing up with two special needs brothers i had so many of the same feelings that she went through in this book. I feel like she went through a lot of emotional times during the book and I went through a lot of similar feelings through the years. Anyone who has a special needs sibling will have these feelings and will always have the feeling of resentment toward them. This book was amazing, it was written in verse and is an emotional ride, at least for me.It was also the perfect book to bring me out of my reading slump. I would highly recommend it.
