About this title

Synopsis:

Fifteen-year-old Jack's confused feelings for his father, who left him and his mother four years earlier, are further complicated when he finds that his father is gay.

From the Back Cover:

"A moving novel, and a very refreshing one. Jack is such an engaging, attractive human being, it's a pleasure to believe in him." -- David Foster Wallace"The engaging, doggedly funny [Jack] is likable from the first paragraph, a good kid caught in circumstances too much for him. And in the particulars of those circumstances, A. M. Homes touches upon something unique. Ms. Homes handles the big subjects subtly, deftly and with an appealing lack of melodrama."

-- The New York Times Book Review

"A. M. Homes has created a most endearing teenager, and an intensely real world around him .... A fine book."

-- Hilma Wolitzer
