I’ll Be There
By Holly Goldberg Sloan
Little, Brown and Company, 2011. 392 pgs. Young Adult
Raised by an unstable father who keeps constantly on the move, Sam Border has long been the voice of his silent younger brother, Riddle, but everything changes when Sam meets Emily Bell and, welcomed by her family, the brothers are faced with normalcy for the first time.
This was an awesome coming of age, adventure story. Sam and Riddle have been surviving on their own for years even though they live with their father. By the end of the story though, the reader really sees how strong these boys really are. I really enjoyed this debut novel.
