Isa Zaman might forgive his parents for taking in a friend's son if only he wasn't the most boring teenager in the universe. Macklin "Mackie" Cormack's only interests are reading and the outdoors. Yeah, right. Isa's convinced Mackie is either a pyro or a klepto. Plus, as a white kid, Mackie looks ridiculous in the Zamans' Arab American household. Forced to share a bedroom, the boys keep butting heads until an absurd fight finally breaks the tension between them.

Isa's just starting to figure life out: this new houseguest, his cultural identity, school, and even girls, when the entire family is uprooted from their home for reasons Isa can't understand. They move from their tiny city apartment to a giant old house in a small town, hours away from everything he's ever known. Oh, and the new house? It's probably haunted, or so says the blank-faced ten-year-old next door. As if things weren't weird enough, Isa's friendship with Mackie suddenly takes a strange turn down a path Isa's not sure he's ready to follow. It turns out Mackie Cormack isn't nearly as boring as Isa once imagined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really well-done ya story This is a good book. The main characters are young (14-15 and 15-16) and the progression of their relationship is age-appropriate and, although important, it's not the only focus of the story. It's a story about family, finding your place in the world, and dealing with conflicting feelings about the changes that growing up brings (regardless of sexual orientation). We get to see the growth of a real friendship and eventually love between Isa and Mackie, we get a sort of ghost story along the way, and we get to see along with Isa and Mackie what family means.
