    Letters to Brian was one of those books that really gathers you

    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.
