Flynn: At first we were almost strangers. But ever since I moved to New York, Amos was the one person I could count on. And together we were there for Poppy.

Amos, Flynn and Poppy are stepsiblings. Amos, the eldest, has no biological connection to Flynn, but once they realized his mom and her dad were likely to stay together, they had several moments.

It's 'almost' a coming of age book... maybe?
It's told in the POV of three people- Flynn, Amos and Poppy.
I enjoyed this book but there was just something missing. I a ...more
