The Rules of Survival by Nancy Werlin

This book grabbed my attention the second I started reading it a couple weeks ago. The book is a “letter” from seventeen-year-old Matt to his baby sis Emmy, telling her how they grew up because he knows she won’t remember a lot of it. That’s probably a good thing because their mom is crazy, sweet as sugar one second, then yelling and abusing them before they know what’s happened. What I loved about this book is that I felt like I was right there with Matt as the story was happening, and felt his pain and frustration when he tried to get his estranged father, aunt and one of his mom’s boyfriends to help them.
