Summary
Colin's teenage sister teases him mercilessly, his autistic brother lashes out at him, and he has a crush on his best friend, Andy. When his father commits suicide Diane, his mother, seeks solace in therapy. Awash in guilt, Colin casts about for someone to confide in: first his estranged grandfather, then a predatory science teacher. But nothing helps as much as the strange writing his father kept in a series of notebooks locked in his study. When his mother has a miserable fling with a co-worker, and leans more heavily on Colin for support as things go from bad to worse. Will a road trip to Los Angeles give them a glimpse of what the future might hold?
Summary
A wrenching and layered debut about a gay teen's coming-of-age in the aftermath of his father's suicide traces the efforts of a middle-school youth who searches for a confidante and solace while reading his late father's bizarre personal notebooks and enduring painful family dynamics
