The Latent Powers of Dylan Fontaine

This is another one that was just "eh" for me. I liked the idea of the book - a mother leaves her husband and 2 sons for another man. Dad is a workaholic and big bro is a pothead musician. Main character Dylan is mixed up about a lot of things including the gal in his life.

But for me, the characters fell flat. They were not dynamic or believable as real people. The band members were all stereotypes and no one really struck me as someone I could meet on the street.

One thing I really liked is this Australian saying "She'll be apples" which apparently means everything's gonna be just fine. I'd love to hear someone say that in real life now that I know what it means!
