Publisher's Summary

Jarrett doesn't trust Kevon.
But he's got to share a room with him anyway.
It was one thing when Jarrett's mom took care of foster babies who needed help. But this time it's different. This time the baby who needs help has an older brother - a kid Jarrett's age named Kevon. Everyone thinks Jarrett and Kevon should be friends - but that's not gonna happen. Not when Kevon's acting like he's better than Jarrett - and not when Jarrett finds out Kevon's keeping some major secrets. Jarrett doesn't think it's fair that he has to share his room, his friends, and his life with some stranger. He's gotta do something about it - but what? From award-winning author Coe Booth, Kinda Like Brothers is the story of two boys who really don't get along - but have to find a way to figure it out.

Very diverse

Would you consider the audio edition of Kinda Like Brothers to be better than the print version?

Since the narrator can make the audio I actually think this is awesome on audio, I would never had had the time to read it and the narrator was outstanding.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Kinda Like Brothers?

There is a part where I think Jarrett says to his principal I hate to read, the principal says so did I now look at all these books. If you know me (dyslexic librarian) it is quite funny.

Have you listened to any of John Clarence Stewart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No but would love too, he was awesome.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
