Back cover copy
Staying back to take the call has just saved his life.
As a global tragedy unfolds, Russell must deal with his own devastating news: his mother has died, leaving his mentally disabled brother, Ben, all alone.
Leaving New York to return to his small hometown, Russell must try to deal with the events that have just happened in his city, as well as his own grief, compounded by the painful awareness that he is now all that Ben has.
Adjusting to a new life isn’t easy. Can Russell ever move on with his own life while his brother so depends on him? Or is there a way for the two to put the past behind them and teach each other how to survive?
