Shepherd Avenue by Charles Carillo: I really liked this book. The only reason I didn't gave it 5 stars, is because it has many grammar and editorial mistakes, but the story, oh the story is so good! I really felt like I knew all the characters. I pictured them perfectly and I even heard their voices. Plus, I was sad when it ended, and that is always a good sign. ☆☆☆☆¾
