Kinda Like Brothers by Coe Booth
Jarrett has a lot on his plate. He’s in summer school, and not doing so well. If he doesn’t pass he’ll have to repeat sixth grade and be behind all his friends. He’s falling hard for a girl but can’t work up the courage to talk to her. And his best friend is acting weird since coming back from a visit with his dad. So the last thing he needs is for his mom to take in another foster baby, let alone that baby’s big brother. Kevon takes over Jarrett’s room, his friends, and his life. Jarrett knows Kevon is hiding something, and he wants to find out what it is so he can get rid of him as soon as possible. But everything he does turns out wrong, and Jarrett ends up looking like the bad guy.
Recommended for middle school and up.
