This is the closest book that I have read...compared to Easy. It is not as good; but a good follow up read if you are looking for something similar. This book made me cry about chapter 18; I believe. It was a heartwrenching scene with Noah and his brother... I also enjoyed the lunchroom scenes; where the author described one in particular as a lull went over the student body while everyone prepared for the showdown; and I could have sworn that weird western whistle was playing over the loud speaker. It was a very good book.
