The Lucky Kind (ARC) by Alyssa b. Sheinmel
Description from goodreads:
High school junior Nick Brandt is intent on getting a girlfriend, and Eden Reiss is the one that he wants. He has exactly four semesters to get the girl, but when the phone rings on an otherwise ordinary Tuesday night, life for Nick and his parents will never be the same. What had been a seemingly idyllic home life has become something else entirely. But with this shake-up comes a newfound confidence for Nick; he's become a bolder version of himself, no longer afraid to question his parents, and no longer afraid to talk to Eden.
Alyssa B. Sheinmel has written a powerfully gripping story about family secrets, falling in love, and finding luck in unexpected--and sometimes unwelcome—circumstances.
High school junior Nick Brandt has great parents, good grades, his best friend Stevie and is sure this is the year he will finally talk to Eden Reiss. Nick soon finds out that his parents have been keeping a big secret from him, and he doesn't trust them so much anymore.
I usually don't like reading books from a boys perspectives, but this was pretty good. I like romance told from a boys point of view I have recently discovered. It gives me a sence of what is going on in teenage boys heads, something I still have yet to discover completely. This was a quick and easy read. 3/5
