This one Time with Julia by David Lampson
Publication Date: February 2, 2012
Summary (from goodreads):
The story of Joe, a boy who can fall in love but can't grow up.
After Joe's parents died, he stopped growing up. He doesn't know where his money comes from. His diet consists primarily of cheeseburgers from McDonald's. He plays basketball on the level of a pro, but he has only ever played on the streets.
Then his brother disappears, and Julia shows up. Joe falls in love with Julia as quickly as his twin brother, Alvin, did. And like Alvin did before him, he runs away with Julia to her parents' hotel. There he's so blinded by her seductive, dysfunctional family that he can't see the truth of his brother's disappearance...until he accidentally stumbles upon Alvin's killer.
This story sounds so haunting and when I read the summary, it sent chills down my spine. What are you waiting for?
