About the Author
When TJ Klune was eight, he picked up a pen and paper and began to write his first story (which turned out to be his own sweeping epic version of the video game Super Metroid—he didn't think the game ended very well and wanted to offer his own take on it. He never heard back from the video game company, much to his chagrin). Now, two decades later, the cast of characters in his head have only gotten louder, wondering why he has to go to work as a claims examiner for an insurance company during the day when he could just stay home and write. 

He lives with a neurotic cat in the middle of the Sonoran Desert. It’s hot there, but he doesn’t mind. He dreams about one day standing at Stonehenge, just so he can say he did.

Ox was twelve when his daddy taught him a very valuable lesson. He said that Ox wasn’t worth anything and people would never understand him. Then he left.
 
Ox was sixteen when he met the boy on the road, the boy who talked and talked and talked. Ox found out later the boy hadn’t spoken in almost two years before that day, and that the boy belonged to a family who had moved into the house at the end of the lane.
 
Ox was seventeen when he found out the boy’s secret, and it painted the world around him in colors of red and orange and violet, of Alpha and Beta and Omega.
 
Ox was twenty-three when murder came to town and tore a hole in his head and heart. The boy chased after the monster with revenge in his bloodred eyes, leaving Ox behind to pick up the pieces.
 
It’s been three years since that fateful day—and the boy is back. Except now he’s a man, and Ox can no longer ignore the song that howls between them.

Just so that I start off on an honest footing, let it be known that I am a huge TJ Klune fan!  The vast majority of this author's work has me laughing til I cry, and my kids looking at me as though I have got a screw or two loose. This book was different, though...there were still tears, but not of the laughter induced variety. There was still some humor in this story; a little less slapstick perhaps, but it was there and it was funny and it belonged, but this book made my heart ache. Meeting Ox and Joe as children instantly embedded them in my heart, both  troubled, both a little different, both not quite the 'norm'. Two young boys destined to change each other's lives. This story is action packed and emotion filled, with a large cast of characters that love and fight, nurture and argue, and stand together....the way families are supposed to do.

Ultimately, for me, along with the relationship between the MCs, which is just wonderful and powerful; this book is about all the different ways to make a family. The family we are born to, the family we choose, and the family that chooses us. When we are open and honest about who we are, we give others the opportunity to stand with us and support us......and it's those people, both friends and relatives,  that extended family, those strong ties,  that makes us powerful. They give us courage, they give us hope and they enable us to fight for ourselves and for each other.

I can't recommend this book highly enough!!
