After his brother is killed in Iraq, Kaden visits his cousin, James, in San Francisco and begins a life filled with drugs, sex, and emotional ups and downs.

Simon and Schuster
Wake up and do something!

Kaden Norris's life is shattered when his older brother -- his best friend and hero -- is killed in Iraq. All Kaden has left of Kenny is a letter, urging him to break away from his sheltered life and to go to San Francisco to visit his cousin, James.

Kaden is blown away, as James introduces him to a life filled with drugs, sex, and apathy. He goes from extreme high to extreme low, having no idea what to expect. And when Kaden uncovers secrets about his family that have been kept from him for years, his entire world comes crashing down. This may not be the trip his brother had envisioned for him, but it's one Kaden will never forget.

doesn't really matter that there is some coarse language it is really worth reading. It lets you into kaden's life and he really has to go with the flow and be like others to fit in. he learns some life lessons ,I think, that opens his eyes to the real world. btw they talk about a lot of music i've never heard of.
