One theme of this story is that people have it very hard in life sometimes and we can all relate to that.
Joseph has it so hard he can't see anyone he loves and everyone makes him sound like this monster cause he made one mistake and took a pill that wasn't a good idea.
He is a thirteen year old boy with black hair and black eyes, he's got a daughter named jupiter who he really loves. He does whatever he got to, to keep his loved once safe and he doesn't back down hes a very determined boy.

Joseph Brook is a round parent it gives you details about him, whats going on in his life and everything he went through.
I really really liked this book. It is very good and lets you see how hard life can actually be.
It has a very sad ending tho.Like why did his dad have to come there drinking and why did he have to get in that car before he could meet jupiter.
