Synopsis

Only Brother by Caias Ward

Meet Andrew Simmons, the only brother of William. Always feeling distant from his family, Andrew now faces the shock of his life when the better-liked,older William suddenly dies after overcoming a series of debilitating illnesses. Losing the chance to reconcile with his brother, the stresses of normal teen life are compounded by the demands his family place on him, and the ghost of a brain-dead brother lying in a hospital bed, who was one person to him and someone vastly different to everyone else. The Only Brother tells of Andrew's battle with his parents, his friends, and the memory of his brother, to make his own place in the world. Often sad, sometimes harrowing, sometimes hopeful, always engaging and thought-provoking, and with an intensely personalised narrative style, it is packed with drama and emotion from one page to the next. The Only Brother is a title in the highly contemporary Cutting Edge fiction series for young adults. The series features fast-paced quick reads. Each book focuses on difficult topics and situations that many teenagers will have experienced first-hand or through friends. Cutting Edge is ideal for readers aged 14+ with a reading age of 12+.
