This is the story of Eric, who is a jerk, and Nicky, his brother. At some point, Nicky tells Eric, "I'm sorry she [their mom] took your cape. Who the fuck cares?!" Exactly.

Kelly oh no I just got this in. oh it's not ACTUALLY joe hill?

Melissa No, it's based on a short story by him. This is awful, but it'll take you two seconds to read if you go ahead with it.

Raven OMG, Yes. But I liked the book overall.
