** spoiler alert ** A very quick read. I didn't want to put it down, and I'd give it 4 1/2 stars if I could. I'm not exactly sure what's keeping me from giving it 5 stars. Maybe I'll figure that out in the next few days. I didn't find James too whiny at all, as some people have said of him. I liked him very much, even though I'm not sure that he'd like me! I like how he was suffering from PTSD after 9/11, and how it was slowly revealed, and shown that he still wasn't completely dealing with it by the end, but had started to. Loved the grandma, and the realistic interplay between the 3 generations.
