2018 book 38

Melina Marchetta's The Piper's Son
The followup to Saving Francesca centers on one of the boys from the previous book, and his family--shattered by grief and alcoholism and stubbornness. But how they put themselves back together is why this story is so compelling. Amazing characters struggling with real issues, but not in an after-school special sort of way. Marchetta is just great.
