Description

With a wholly original voice, this stunning debut novel captures the overwhelming transformation from childhood to adolescenceAn ordinary suburban Connecticut summer in the seventies is the stage for the miraculous world of Timmy. Twelve years old and full of boundless curiosity, Timmy lives an ever-expanding life of record collections (of which Elton John is king), neighborhood bullies (of whom Franky DiLorenzo rules), best friends, and the darker, more lasting secrets of family. Over the course of the summer, Timmy will kill a frog, lose his baseball-card collection, alienate a friend, and witness his parents' separation. An intruder will hide in his treehouse; his mother will threaten divorce; his father will move out and back in. Timmy's childhood will end and his adolescence begin.One of the most remarkable child narrators to come along in recent years, Timmy is the achievement of a stunning new voice in American fiction. "In the Cherry Tree" is an addictively clever and appealing novel of our universal coming of age.
