“Sixteen-year-old Elijah is completely mellow and his 23-year-old brother Danny is completely not, so it’s no wonder they can barely tolerate one another. So what better way to repair their broken relationship than to trick them into taking a trip to Italy together?”

The story is about two brothers who were tricked by their mother to go on a trip together to Italy: Danny, eldest who works for marketing and is also a rising star in his field in New York and Elijah, a teenager who usually smokes pot and loves hanging out with his friends in his boarding house.

They went on a trip to Italy with no such deep or even longer conservations other than one-word question and answer exchanges. It was a tough stay but throughout the book, the story developed and the two brothers discovered a lot about each other and themselves.

It is a short story that is written in prose and honestly, I didn’t like the book because of the writing style. It didn’t got me hooked rather it bored me and I was just wanting the story to be over while reading. It was excellent but there are just some books that isn’t for us and I think this book is not for me or did not pass my liking.

Hey, guys! Not because I did not liked this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read it. Give it a try and you might just love it! 😄 No two persons read the same book. We have different preferences and interpretations ✌🏼️
