Seventeen-year-old Cecil Rowe loves to write, to read, to think, and to amble about his tiny Tidewater town of Bricksburg, Virginia. Of course, if he had a driver's license, he'd rather drive. And if he could make up his mind which girl to choose, he'd want to take one along.
Cecil in Space is Sid Hite's most thoughtful, romantic, and insightful coming-of-age novel. It captures that wonderful time in a young writer's life when he begins to feel the power of his own words, and the precise moment in a young man's growth when clarity can only come in a kiss.
