I have a son and we have an amazing relationship. I love how we can share all the happy and sad moments in our lives. This book is about a boy and the flashbacks of his present and his youth. A coming of age of sorts. The exploration of the relationship between mother and son. Each chapter alternate between the past, when the main character Tyler was an exchange student in Ecuador and the present, where Tyler shares the sad and painful secrets when he was young to his mother. They are both equally riveting and detailed. Anderson creates 2 circumstances that attracts both young adult readers and parents. This was enjoyable and well written.

HERE’S A DESCRIPTION
For two decades Tyler Gibbons has been keeping a secret from his family. At the tender age of sixteen, Tyler embarks on a student exchange program. Sent to the Andean city of Ambato, Ecuador, he finds daily adventure as he tries to fit in at school, connect with his host family, and navigate through a world of beaches, volcanoes, and jungles. But tucked deep inside this year are events so profound, so unexpected, they forever shape the man he will become.
Now, 25 years later, his mother pulls these soaring tales from her son, exposing, for the first time, the source of a deep unhappiness. While these memories contain the wounds of an unresolved past, they also possess the power to heal his painful present.
Thoughtfully crafted and boldly told, Tyler’s journey takes the reader on a wild South American adventure, while illuminating a mother’s unyielding power to heal her child.
