Second best.

Nathan McKenna was always second best. To all, he was the golden boy's best friend, the dead boy's best friend. To his father, all that he did was never satisfactory. Not his football skills, not his academic skills, not even his obedience. 

Okay, so maybe this got Nathan down. Maybe it didn't. But just like in every book, there was that one person who never regarded Nathan as second best. But of course unlike most books, it ended.
