Review: Rough Waters by S.L. Rottman

5 STARS Rough Waters made me feel! I was so invested into Scott. Got really angry at Roger. Wanted to tell Greg off and to grow up. I cried in a few places too. I did not put the book down till I had finshed reading it. In the end I wanted to go on a rafting trip again. The book starts with Scott and Greg trying to go through all thier possessions decide what they wanted keep, sell or donate. Thier parents having both died in a car crash. They had no seatbelts on and no money left by the time all the expenses and loans are paid for. Greg had 3 months before he turned 18. Had enough to pay one year of collage then he did not know what would happen. Scott was 15 he had good grades and time to earn scholarships for collage. They grew up in california. Now they had to go to Colorado and live with a Uncle they never knew they had. Thier neighbor was helping them pack and was willing to store somethings for them. Scott would rather stay with her. But thier parents made a will 15 years early and made thier Uncle thier guardian. Thier Uncle said they could come live with them but not to bring much because he has a real small house. No one was thier to meet the plane and when they called collect he refused to take the call and said someone would be by to pick them up soon. When they got to thier Uncle Rocky's he stopped by to welcome them and told them that they could work for him. He would train Greg to be a river guide when he was 18 he would get paid more. They would share a bedroom and with two twin beds and two dressers was pretty much all the room. Greg resented having to live by Rocky's few rules. He did like the river runs and got along great with Roger who was training him. Scott was willing to give Rocky a chance. Greg not so much. I would read more books like this one. I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley. 05/01/2012 PUB Peachtree Publishers
