** spoiler alert ** This book feels like several different stories in one. Some of the 'stories' were better than others, so I was at a bit of a toss up between 3 and 4 stars for this.

The beginning was okay. I had a hard time getting into it and feeling a theme that would catty on to the end of the book. But then Stick and Boston went to California and I LOVED it!

It continued along pretty good, even after the boys had to go back home. Then it became yet another story, where Stick had to make his own way to Cali and search for his missing brother. This is where it started to go downhill - the resolution of searching for Boston. Stick didn't find him and settled back in California with his Aunt and new friends, registered for school, etc. Then he gets word from Boston....and I stopped carrying. This part of the story didn't get the attention it deserved. Hadn't part of Stick running away been because he was looking for his brother? This ending knocked a star off.
