The Latent Powers of Dylan Fontaine - April Lurie

The back of this book describes it so well, I'm just going to post that instead of writing my own summary.

A Mother
who split for another man,

A Father
who works 24/7.

An Older Brother
who excels at everything - and smokes a lot of weed.

A Best Friend
of the feminine persuasion, who only wants to be a friend, and who's shooting a film set in cool Greenwich Village, New York.

Dylan Fontaine's
life seems to be full of drama he can't control. But when he starts in his best friends movie, Dylan discovers that sometimes life's big shake-ups force you to take risks - and step into the spotlight.

I can't even describe to you how much I loved this book. April Lurie has described the life of a teenager excatly how some of us feel. Dylan feels like he isn't as good as his brother, he doesn't understand why his mom left his family for another man, and he just wants to find out who he is. He is going through love issues - with his best friend, of all people - and his dad is never around because he is always working.

Even though I, personally, can't relate to all of the things that happen to Dylan in the book, I felt like I knew who he was, and I could relate to him still. I'm trying to figure out who I am and sometimes I feel like I'm not as good as my sibling, like Dylan. Even if you don't have siblings, or your parents arn't split up, you can still relate to the main character, and April Lurie does a great job of writing so that you feel every emotion that Dylan does.

The Latent Powers of Dylan Fontaine was released today and I would suggest you go to the bookstore right now and buy it.
