this is a memoir i read for one of my book clubs. my favorite thing about it was that it was set in sf. now that i live here, i like to read about sf. besides that, i liked reading about this 20 year old who is stuck caring for his young brother after his parents both die of cancer. the way he stepped up and took responsibility... quite a change from the last book club book, where she spent her whole time being completely irresponsible and preachy.
