Abstract:

In the remarkable, bizarre, and heart-rending summer before Cullen Witter's senior year of high school, everything he thinks he understands about his small and painfully dull ArKansas town vanishes. His cousin overdoses; his town becomes absurdly obsessed with the alleged reappearance of an extinct woodpecker; and most troubling of all, his sensitive, gifted fifteen-year-old brother, Gabriel, suddenly and inexplicably disapears. As Cullen navigates a summer of finding and losing love, holding his fragile family together, and muddling his way into adulthood, a young, disillusioned missionary in Africa searched for meaning wherever he can find it.
