"Felton Reinstein thought he had it all-a great girlfriend, an athletic scholarship in the bag, and football friends he could totally count on. Wrong Like an elephant storming a house of cards, it all comes crashing down. And it's Felton's fault. Turns out his little brother has taken an impromptu road trip to Florida (aka desperate flight from all the talented people) to make a bid for stardom (aka fronting a hotel rock band with escapees from a retirement community). What's a big brother to do but help pick up the pieces, even if it means giving up all the status, all the glory and once again facing a life of nothing special."
This is a continuation of Stupid Fast. You can read this book alone, but there is information from the last book that will help you understand this one.

Once again, Felton is on his way to find himself. After discovering secrets, Felton is on a new mission to save his brother. I loved that this plot line feels real. With emotions that rock the reader, Felton learns to sacrafice everything for the one he loves. I loved that with each chapter Felton is so real. He doesn't sugarcoat things but says things they way that they are. Even when he knows he is being correct himself, he is humble enough to recongnise  his mistakes and own up to it.

The  misson on finding his brother is a good one. Felton is left with clues and figures every single one out. He lies to his mom and friends, just to save his brother. The love and bond between these two is amazing. Throughout their fights, the reader see two amazing brothers fighting for what they have left.

I just adored the story all together. Many family secrets and family drama occur. Yet all the characters rise stronger then before.

Nothing Special is a great comtemp that charms the reader from the first page. The cool humor along with the adreline rush of the secrets coming at the reader, urges the reader to read on. Nothing Special is great!

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. That reminds me that I haven't read Stupid Fast. It's sitting on my shelf but I haven't picked it up. Must do.

  2. I've been really into comtemps lately this one sounds really good I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

  3. Hm... might have to pick up both books. They do sound interesting and I don't often read contemps with a boy as a protag. Thanks!
