Product Overview

Just when 17-year-old Cullen Witter thinks he understands everything about his small and painfully dull Arkansas town, it all disappears. Tinged with melancholy and regret, comedy and absurdity, this novel finds wonder in the ordinary and emerges as ultimately hopeful.

From the Publisher
Annotation The seemingly unconnected events in the lives of 17-year-old Cullen Witter, a disgruntled native of the tiny town of Lily, Arkansas, and 18-year-old Benton Sage, a missionary in Ethiopia, cleverly converge in this complicated, funny young adult novel. Sick of small town life, Cullen longs to be writer, and the summer before his senior year gives him lots of material. When a birder discovers the Lazarus woodpecker, long thought to be extinct, in Lily, the town goes crazy, much to Cullen's disgust. At the same time, his younger brother, Gabriel, goes missing and no one seems to care. In alternating chapters, Benton's story about leaving Ethiopia for college in Atlanta, and his interest in a mythical religious text are mysteriously explored. Winner of the American Library Association's 2011 Michael L. Printz Award.
