3.75 stars rounded up

My first A.J. Thomas, thanks to my friend Irene. It was solid in writing, interesting in family dynamic, smart in technical details, and strong in characterization.

Sean is pretty bad a$$. Dead smart, incredibly hard worker and determined. He's made a pretty great family with Hawk & Tonya and the tattoo shop, but it's not quite enough. His intense need to be "normal" and accepted take him down a crazy twisted path, one very difficult to find his way back
