Joe's twin brother, Alvin, disappeared. And with him went Joe's tenuous grip on real life. The rest of it: the road trip, the maybe-murder, the burned-down house--all of that came later.

At eighteen, Joe is stuck in limbo. Directionless and simple, he blows through his inheritance playing poker and eats only cheeseburgers, pizza, and guacamole. Then his twin brother, Alvin, disappears--and Julia, Alvin's tempestuous girlfriend, takes Joe on a whirlwind road trip from L.A. to Tennessee. There, he's thrust into the dysfunctional dynamic of her wealthy family. For the first time, Joe has a job. He has a suit he wears every day. And he's in love with a crazy, beautiful girl who only talks honestly in her sleep. Joe's so blinded by his seductive new life that he almost misses the truth about what happened to his twin...

Maybe Joe can't grow up--but he can love.

 

YES!! A murder mystery!! I have a feeling this one’s going to be goooood! :)

    The blurb is very mysterious and at the same time makes me so curious about the book. Normaly i don’t read a lot of mystery but I think I have to make an exemption.

    This one sounds great! And I love that it’s from a man’s perspective. We don’t see as much of that as we should. Good pick!
