Our Brothers at the Bottom of the Bottom of the Sea

Our Brothers at the Bottom of the Bottom of the SeaWritten by Jonathan David Kranz

Don’t fall, Ethan scrawls in red permanent marker across the rides and signs of Sea Town.

Don’t fall, Rachel reads as she prepares to dump back into the ocean the shells her brother, Curtis, collected. Curtis had Down syndrome, but that isn’t why he plummeted to his death from the Rock-It-Roll-It coaster.

When the book begins the amusement park on the sea shore is on fire. The rest of the book is about what toke place up to that point. I thought it was going to be predictable, but to my surprise it ended different.
