This book made me feel sad, hopeful, pensive, angry, and ultimately somehow contented with the ending (I think). The story line centers around a family and community mourning the disappearance of high schooler Ethan- son, brother, friend, lover. Told from the perspective of Ethan's younger brother, Phillip, we watch as those who knew him grow and try to come to terms with his disappearance. Also- I appreciated all the spot-on references to rural Massachusetts, where the book is set.
