I love Vinnie, Trey, and all the fabulous secondary characters.
Kan Cullinan has always enjoyed a good love story, provided it has a happy ending. Sometimes family chooses you. I thought the destruction from her alcoholism was very well portrayed in this story.
I appreciated how the differentiation in their families was illustrated.
I had heard of kids drinking NyQuil, but not just drinking faily cough syrup by the bottle.
