Kidzworld reviews the teen book Blood Brothers, written by S.A. Harazin.

Author: S.A. Harazin

Clay is a high school student that dreams of being a doctor. His world gets turned upside down when his best friend overdoses. Can Clay be the hero?

Best Buds

For the past 10 years, Clay and Joey have been best pals and cycling partners. Working at a local hospital, Clay had dreams of going to medical school, but doesn't have the grades or money to go. Joey, on the other hand, comes from a wealthy family and is the school's valedictorian and football star and will be attending prestigious Duke University.

An Emergency Arises

One summer night, Clay gets off a shift that is marked by a teenage girl dying as a result of a car crash. He goes straight to Joey's house and he finds his best friend naked and in a violent and incoherent state. Within moments, Joey collapses and Clay is forced to call 911, where Joey is taken to the hospital and placed on life support. Clay comes to find out Joey was just at a party and his overdose may have been a result of drugs he had possibly taken at the hospital. Now Clay has to find out what happened to his best friend - despite some people's suspicions that Clay may have had something to do with his friend's OD.

The Bottom Line

Blood Brothers provides a mature and realistic look into the dark side of life of teenagers. Author S.A. Harazin tells a unique story that has a lot of twists and surprises. It also helps that Harazin worked in nursing, so this story probably was inspired by real events he witnessed. A powerful and interesting read that we recommend you check out!

However, when you become pregnant, you know theres a CHANCE you COULD get pregnant, if you don't want to, use protection. People know the consequences with doing the "dirty", so if you think youre mature enough to do it, you can be mature enough to be a mom. And if you don't think you want to be a mom, theres adoption. Theres too many people who cant have babies for unknown reasons, I think that if you abort a baby, youre just throwing a smack in the face to those who cant have children.

Men should not choose what women do, and women should have the right to be able to control her baby. We do give the birth after all!!If someone was raped, I believe they have the right to abortion. Yes, however, I believe a father has the right to an opinion. Just because he doesn't have birth doesn't mean his opinions don't matter. Especially since its his child just as much as the mothers.
