I read “Middle school: Mmy Bbrother is a Bbig Ffat Lliar” by James Patterson. The book mainly talks about what the title explains. On how having a brother that continuously lies on you and one who is consantly annoying you in any and everything you do. You would think since he’s older he would act more mature than what he does,but he doesn’t. At times it does show where they aren’t trying to cut each others heads off but them actually getting along, which is barely ever.
