Book Review: What We Never Had (San Jose Mercury News)

"The book tells the story of Josh, a twenty-something guy living in Hollywood during the tense, post-Iraq invasion days of 2003. Josh, whose ambitions as an actor have come to naught, has found a job supervising privileged teens in a high school “Homework Club.” His friends Bill and Amare aren’t so lucky. Chronically unemployed, they spend their days railing against the state of the world and their nights crashing on the couch of Josh’s one-bedroom apartment."
