just finished reading

From the publisher:
Thirteen-year-old Steven has a totally normal life: he plays drums in the All-Star Jazz band, has a crush on the hottest girl in the school, and is constantly annoyed by his five-year-old brother, Jeffrey. But when Jeffrey is diagnosed with leukemia, Steven's world is turned upside down. He is forced to deal with his brother's illness and his parents' attempts to keep the family in one piece.

What I liked was the portrayal of Steven's school and school day. And that the story wasn't hokey. I admit I was moved to tears a couple of times. I can't wait to read the sequel.

Sounds like a book my newly-blooming reader would love. For some reason Harley (age 15) has finally found reading and I am always on the lookout for books for her.
