The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book took me on many highs (his relationship with Rusty) and many lows (hiding in a hospital because he blames himself for his parents deaths). Andrew is a teen who is concealing so many things from everyone, including himself. He is gifted with pen and writes/illustrates a story about Patient F (who is really him). He has made many friends in the hospital, both staff and patients and it is his interactions with all of these people, especially Father Mike, Lexi, and Trevor that resonated most deeply with me. As he runs from himself, he learns so many things from everyone he meets in the hospital, and we are left to wonder, will Drew ever leave the hospital and what will he find in the real world?
