*** Brewster by Mark Slouka

Another dark novel about teenagers. Brewster is the painful story of three friends growing up in the eponymous town, each with serious parents’ problems, although for one the problems are way more severe than for the others, and will end up in disaster all around. Not exactly happy material, but told with just the right tone of quasi-desperation punctuated with the dreams of moving out, and the few adults who provide solace. Highly recommended!
