Static by Eric Laster

When Curtis starts receiving phone calls from his dead brother Wilt, he's sure there must be more to his death than he was initially told. Curtis begins an adventure to find out what really happened, whilst trying to navigate the world of girls, work, illegal dog fighting and family drama. 

I wasn't a fan of this book. That's not to say it was a bad book, it just didn't entertain me in any way. I wasn't connected to any of the characters, Curtis especially, which is disappointing as he was our protagonist/hero and I just didn't feel like I cared what happened to any of the characters in the story. Due to that, I found myself rushing to finish the book so it was done, rather than because I was interested in how the story played out.  

I would recommend reading other reviews of this book before deciding against reading it, as it does have positive points and I can see other people liking this book but unfortunately, it wasn't for me.
