Finished A List of Cages by Robin Roe. I received a copy for review.
High school senior Adam is assigned a troubled freshman to monitor and it turns out to be Julian, his former foster brother. Julian has a learning disability and tends to be sick a lot but it turns out there’s a lot more going on.
This book is absolutely wrenching. Learning about what Julian has to deal with completely broke my heart. You should know that going in.
But there’s also a lot more here. It’s about bravery and friendship and family. It’s about survival.
This book is amazing. Yes, you’ll cry. But you’ll never feel emotionally manipulated or preached at.
This is the kind of book you remember and pass on to others. Recommended.
