Briarpatch by Anna Pollack

Since the passing of his mother, Marcus has left college and returned home to take care of his younger sister Ashley. At only 19, Marcus is trapped in the early morning, long night grind of delivering packages while his sister’s only concern seems to be spending the summer with her friends. When Marcus is offered a more lucrative job opportunity they both have a rude awakening about how they have been managing being on their own. The siblings are confronted with how much of a sacrifice they are willing to make to stay grounded, all on the longest day of the year.
