It's a suburban summer in the seventies. Twelve years old and full of boundless curiosity, Timmy lives in an ever-expanding realm of record collections (of which Elton John is king), neighborhood bullies (of which Franky DiLorenzo rules), best friends, and backyard football. But 1974 is the summer that changes everything. An intruder will break into his tree house. Timmy will lose a friend, discover sex, and learn the darker, more lasting secrets of his own household. Featuring one of the most remarkable child narrators to come along in recent years, In the Cherry Tree is the achievement of a stunning new voice in American fiction, an addictively clever and appealing novel of our universal coming of age.
