Blood Brothers by Ron Soble
Melissa’s first review of the year

This book is badly in need of an update. It comes to an abrupt end at the culmination of the brothers' first trial, meaning I had to go on Wikipedia to find out how it all turned out. It's also littered with spelling mistakes. The authors refer to themselves in third person, which scans oddly.

Elevation by Stephen King
Melissa’s last review of the year
liked it
I found that I much preferred "Laurie" - the short story at the end of the audiobook - to the main story Elevation.
