Spotlight on What They Always Tell Us

With the sad news of bullying leading to yet another teen suicide, I thought this was an appropriate choice.

James - he's the older, confident brother. He's popular, smart, and an athlete. So why didn't his brother come to him instead of...

Alex - he's a high school junior trying to figure out his life. His friends have abandoned him and all for a reason he cannot figure out...or can he?

Wilson's debut novel is of two brothers trying to figure things out - life, love, each other. Wilson is a new author, but there is a lot of promise in his honest story-telling. He presents the reader with a tender representation of a teen questioning his sexuality and what that could mean to his family, but especially to his relationship with his brother.
