Every Bright and Broken Thing by Brian McBride

Haunted by the last question their mother ever asked them before she passed away, the Greyson brothers struggle to cope with their grief and adjust to life after tragedy.
Semi-popular sixteen-year-old Liam spends his nights performing as the lead singer of his high school indie pop/rock band, Liam and the Landmarks. But something happened to Liam two years ago at his friend's house - a secret Liam will take to his grave. But in small towns like Summit, Colorado, secrets always seem to find their way out.
Twenty-four-year-old Ezra thought that he could cure his grief when he left Summit behind for a prestigious art school in Chicago, but things only got worse. Now a college dropout working at a gas station mini mart, he turns to alcohol, prescription painkillers, and meaningless one-night stands. But Ezra can't run forever - life always catches up with you.

Thoughts:
I have a book to recommend to you today and I’m so excited to share it with you all. I had heard some great things about Every Bright and Broken Thing but didn’t know much about it. I am so thankful that I read it because it is so heartbreaking and inspiring and perfect....
This book just tore me apart! It has jumped to one of my favorites. This novel was just so raw and powerful; a story of hope in the hardest times.
Seriously, this book is AMAZING. I have already reread it. (Yes, it was that good.) It is going on my bookshelf as soon as possible in a position of honor.
This book deals with multiple harsh (but realistic) subject so I cannot recommend it to everyone.
