Fifteen-year-old Nix Humbolt doesn't talk much. He's barely outgrown his "Fatty Humbolt" days, and although he is taller and leaner now, he has learned it is best to keep a low profile. He dreams about his only friend's girl, but of course she is hopelessly out of his league. Lonely and introverted, he is happiest in his father's woodworking shop, where he builds exquisite boxes and tables. The only battles Nix fights are on his Xbox - until the day he finds the guts to fight for Swiff Dunphy's neglected dog. Then there is Roxy, Nix's spirited older sister who always knows just how to get what she wants. But the guy she wants is seriously toxic, and even Nix can see that she is headed for disaster. All Nix can do is cover for her when she breaks curfew or comes home drunk. But this time Roxy is about to spiral out of control and change all their lives forever. And there is nothing he can do to stop it.

I really did not expect to like this book, but it ended up being one of the better white pine books I read this year. I thought it was going to be about drug addiction based on the cover, and was pretty surprised when it wasn't. It ended up being a beautiful book with a great main character.

This book was so much more than what I thought it was going to be. I origionally assumed that it would be about a drug addict due to the cover page,and was not looking forward to reading it as I also assumed it was just a depressing tale. However, this book was my favourite for quite some time, due to the main character's strong connection with this dog. I found it was a heart warming tale that I found relatable and insightful.

I found the beginning a bit boring but the rest of it was good. There were a few sad parts but also some serious romance. Loved the ending. <3
