Boy on Hold is an excellent story. Focusing on 7 year old Hen, his 17 year old brother, Tyler, and their mom, Marcella, their lives are turned upside down when Tyler is accused of a horrible crime. Hen happened to be a witness to the crime, and is lost and confused by the accusation against Tyler.
J.D. Spero did a fantastic job of portraying the characters in their elements–the thought processes of a 7 year old innocent child, the confusing mind of a 17 year old boy, and the heartache of a mama caught in the middle of a terrible mess with her children. The story itself kept me guessing, going back and forth on who was guilty and what really happened. A fantastic story and I am looking forward to reading the sequel next!
