i don't have brothers, but this book resonates. i've never been to italy, but i feel like i understand. i don't have parents that would resort to "trickery" (actually, maybe i do) but some how this book felt like home.

"Travel is no longer a pursuit, he thinks. There is something inherently noble about that word - pursuit. Life should be a pursuit."

"Brothers are not like sisters," he says. From his tone, Danny can tell this is something he's learned. "They don't call each other every week. They don't have secret worlds to share. Can you think of two brothers who are really, inseparably close? No, for brothers it's a different set of rules. Like it or not, we're held to the bare minimum . . .

Don't go for normal, Ari suggests. Go for happy. Go for what you want it to be instead of settling for what it is."

this is a kind of bare minimum book, but it works in it's simplicity. not my favorite (a high standard with Levithan), but definitely worth the read!
