In the tradition of "Virgin Suicides" comes an enchanting, critically acclaimed novel of a young man's coming of age in the '90s. Claude Cheever--Cheevey--is about to turn 20 and his family is disintegrating around him. But as he begins to spread his wings and experience adulthood, Cheevey learns that there is a price for letting go too soon--and not soon enough.

Review:

Seventeen magazine expresses some of the appeal of this honest, heart-wrenching novel: "Cheevey stays so consistently crushworthy that you may end up thinking you'd be the perfect person to ease his pain." Cheevey's spirit crumbles as he watches his family disintegrate. He's always held his family together before, but now his parents have retreated into silence, his sister hovers on the verge of mental illness, and his brother, well, his brother might be a lost cause. As his 20th birthday draws near, Cheevey wonders what part of himself will remain intact after the last family bombshell is dropped. Cheevey is a soulful, inspiring character with a heart as wise as it is naked. Gerald DiPego's crafting of this young man's emotional journey is so fine that readers will hear Cheevey's heart beat next to their own.

From the Back Cover:

Every family is unhappy in its own way. And the family of Claude Cheever - Cheevey, to his friends - is more unhappy than most. At age twenty, Cheevey lives in a house of ominous silence. Trapped in a passionless marriage, his parents barely talk. His older brother, tormented by old wounds, has removed himself to a world of drinking and brawling. And Cheevey's sister, married, with a young child, is trapped by her own anguished mind games. Only Cheevey seems to care that things aren't right - that no one connects anymore, that events seem to be spinning out of control. He tries hard to hold his family together, but when he meets Lauren, a young single mother, he suddenly must grapple with his own dilemmas of sex, love, and identity.
