Publisher's Summary

Three years ago, Bear McKenna’s mother took off for parts unknown with her new boyfriend, leaving Bear to raise his six-year-old brother Tyson, aka the Kid. Somehow they’ve muddled through, but since he’s totally devoted to the Kid, Bear isn’t actually doing much living. With a few exceptions, he’s retreated from the world, and he’s mostly okay with that - until Otter comes home.
Otter is Bear’s best friend’s older brother, and as they’ve done for their whole lives, Bear and Otter crash and collide in ways neither expect. This time, though, there’s nowhere to run from the depth of emotion between them. Bear still believes his place is as the Kid’s guardian, but he can’t help thinking there could be something more for him in the world ... something or someone.

Brilliantly beautiful

This is one of the best books I've read/listened to in a long time in any genre. The story is compelling not only clever and funny, touching too without being trite or too cliched. All the characters except for the mother [who was a bit evil villianish], are well rounded with their own foibles and idiosyncrasies, yet are grounded in a sense of reality.This was only improved by the genius that is Sean Cisden reading it.

A Wonderful Narrator for a Wonderful story....

If you could sum up Bear, Otter, and the Kid in three words, what would they be?

Funny, Sad, Fabulous.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Otter...I'm an Otter girl through and through. ;) It's just the thought of his sadness at Bear never being able to return his love...or so he thought.

What about Sean Crisden’s performance did you like?

I loved his ability to give each character a different voice.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both, there were lots of giggles and an equal number of tears too. TJ is an amazing writer, one of my absolute favourites!!
