3 - 3.5 stars
Overall a compelling read, only Kellan's stand-offish behavior was a bit too much. Yes, mom's worsening health was a big part of this story, but it also was a big part of Kellan's life. I got why he was so adamant in keeping his autonomy, and it was nice to see how finally he was able to acknowledge practical help. Only his relationship with Mike was like going round in circles. The I-Love-You-scene and the epilogue were nice.
