How Ya Like Me Now by Brendan Halpin
After Eddie's dad dies, his mom descends into drug addiction, but he managed to keep the household going until his mom loses everything and ends up in rehab. This sends Eddie to live with his aunt and uncle in Boston, where he attends a challenging alternative high school in the inner city where he and his cousin are two of the only white kids.
And.... that's about it. It doesn't seem like anything really happens, or Eddie or his cousin change too much. His mom inevitably gets out of rehab and gets back in touch and everything ends up predictably. NAY.
