Nny from himself and pull their family back together T's fiery sister Xochitl hoodwinks her brothers into a road trip with many stops along the road to visit loved ones from their pa Review copy Digital ARC via NetgalleyRelationships and connections These are things that keep Teodoro “T” going First he has a best friend who believes in him and is willing to stand by him through pretty much anything Second he has a sister who will push him but will also hold him tightly I loved seeing the back and forth between Xochitl and T They both want the best for each other and their brother Manny though they don’t always go about things the same way Flores Scott lets readers get to know T but also allows us to see the ways in which the siblings interact and how those relationships shape the individuals Beyond these two he also has uite a few others in his corner both near and far One of the beauties of this story is how many many people are willing to pitch in to make life better for both T and his brother Their lives are often dark and difficult but hope doesn’t curl up and die because of the many people around themAnd who can resist a road trip story? Road trips almost always provide moments for bonding even if it’s just having some horrible shared experience This particular road trip is all about connecting and re connecting with people Each stop felt like they were tying themselves to others I pictured pins on a map with the strings connecting from one to another This was not an upbeat road trip though There are some moments of humor but Manny’s PTSD is intense and no matter how far they run they can’t seem to escape it Xochitl’s plan is to buy time for healing but this isn’t easyThis might be a challenging book for those who have experienced PTSD in their families The pain is hard to witness even knowing it’s fiction but the love and caring of so many people offers hope and optimism Woven in throughout the most difficult issues there are moments of laughter and a lovely bit of romance so it’s not constant intensityRecommendation Get it soon especially if you enjoy family stories This is not the story of a perfect family but does show a family willing to do what’s needed even when it gets hard I loved getting to know the characters in this story and hope many people get to experience them too
