"My name is Calvin Sinclair, I'm eleven years old and I have a confession...I killed my brother. It's the summer before grade 6 and Calvin Sinclair is bored to tears. He's recently moved from a big city to a small town and there's nothing to do. It's hot, he has no friends and the only kid around is his six-year-old brother Sammy who can barely throw a basketball as high as the hoop. So Cal occupies his time by getting his brother to do almost anything: from chasing wasps to tromping through rose bushes. And Sammy is all too eager - as long as it means getting a "Level" and moving one step closer to his brother's Eagle status. But when Cal meets Aleta Alvarado, a new girl who shares his love for Goosebumps books and adventure, Sammy is pushed aside. Cal feels guilty but not guilty enough to change. At least not until things at home start falling apart and he's left wondering whether Sammy will ever complete his own journey... From Ant, To Eagle."--

I hate to say it, but it feels like the author read 'The Fault in our Stars' and said: I can do sadder.

This book was a great read. It was quick and very sweet. I liked how the author didn't sugar coat anything, nor did he pull any punches. This happens, and people deal with it; even when they're not old enough to fully understand or process it.

Each of the characters were well rounded and felt real. I felt myself connect to each one for different reasons.

A highly recommended read.
