Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Sarcastic, negative Cullen Witter is a 17-year-old living with his family and friends in dead end Lily, Arkansas. It is during the summer before his senior year that his cousin overdoses and dies, an extinct woodpecker returns and his 15 year old brother, Gabriel disappears. As his life unravels, Cullen questions why his brother is missing, why his best friend sticks by him, falls in and out of love, and hopes for the return of his brother. Masterful storytelling, a great read, twists and turns with a wonderful resolution.
