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.

Reviews

Praise for Cecil in Space

"Cecil, well versed in psychology and astronomy, marvels over theories of time, space, black holes, schizophrenia and his placement in the universe during quiet moments. While parodying ordinary foibles, the author conveys his deep affection for people and their quirks." - Publishers Weekly
