Publisher's Summary

Percy DeForest Spock has a successful writing career, a new boyfriend, and is just settling into life in Bloomington, Indiana when a knock at the door turns his world upside down. Waiting on the other side is Caspian, his 15-year-old, Goth nephew. Caspian has just lost his parents, his home, and his been ripped away from the only life he has ever known. Can the mismatched pair make a new life together or are they doomed from the start?

Tyler is excited to meet Percy's nephew, but Caspian is nothing like Tyler expected. Caspian is rude, angry, and a complete and total jerk. He hates everyone and everything and soon the boys are at each other's throats. Just when Tyler begins to hate Caspian with a passion an incident occurs that has the potential to change everything.

    "Sweet enough story"

    Percy De Forrest Spock - uhmn, queue the Star Trek reference. The story takes a while to get going, and seems to come together in the final moments of the book. If you're looking for something not to get too invested in, this is the book for you

    "Meh"

    Cute story concept and outline. Below average execution. Does this guy have an editor?

    Roeder tends to over-write things that a better author would let the reader's imagination handle - like the physical process of walking to, getting in, and riding around in a car. Those words would have better been used in character development.

    Also, the duo point of view story telling seems too limiting for this writer's level of craft. The book is only okay, but I bought it at markdown so there's that.
