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…

This is my favorite book of 2017 so far and my first 5 stars book this year too. It was a poignant story, that made me cry three times. Yes, it was that good! Last time was 2 years ago with ''The fault in our stars'' by John Greene.  It was beautifully written and I hope she writes another book at least. I liked that you can see the strong link between the children and their parents. Especially Adam and his mother. You can sense all their love for each other and it made me feel good.  
During the book, we feel the need to take Julian in our arms and to be friend with Adam and his group.  
Talking about Adam's group, I loved them! They are so open and I particularly liked Charlie. Who's a sweetheart even if he doesn't want to be.
Other than that, Adam have ADHD and the book gives a good portrait about how a person lives with it.
I recommend this book so much, it's a must read for everyone. Go read it!
