Letters to Brian was one of those books that really gathers you up and brings you in to the life of Anthony Pecoraro.  I am allowed a glimpse into a life I never could have or would have been able to know. I was really able to empathize with what he was going through.  I was unable to put it down and read it from beginning to end in one sitting.  I found myself feeling proud with every accomplishment, frustrated with every failure, pain with every DI smack to the head, fear and confusion with every new and crazy experience.  I actually for a moment that made me laugh out loud realized I was going to miss the safety of my DI when I graduated. I realized I did not graduate anything but the author was able to really pull me into his life.  I can NOT wait for the other books so i can see what happened. I want to prequels and sequels.
