Young Adult book. A brother goes missing in the small town of Lily, Arkansas around the same time that the long-thought extinct Lazarus Woodpecker is sighted. The town and family negotiate the hopeful aspect of a boom from the Lazarus while the family tries to deal with their missing son/brother.

Great characterizations of both small town life, grieving and growing up. Throw in a few quirky characters and some serious Southern Baptist flair and it makes for a very enjoyable read. ( )

This was a heart wrenching story about a teenage boy whose younger brother disappears one day, around the same time a woodpecker thought to be extinct makes a resurgence. Or so it seems.

I appreciated the alternating viewpoints, even though that can get heavy handed at times. And I did like how Cullen occasionally refers to himself in the third person-I think I could relate, as I usually lost myself in daydreams as an adolescent myself. ( )

Critique:
It is a great juvenile fiction in terms of the content and the writing craft. As for the content, it is about a teenager who lost his cousin and brother, witnessed the changes of his family and healed his own scar as time went by. It seemed that every time he encountered something, he would gain new thoughts or ideas about life. Among his thoughts, what impressed me most are his opinion about how people are supposed to do to others having a bad time and his confusion about the meaning of life. Since he lost his brother, others considered him as a poor guy, like not charging him his hamburger. He thought it did not comfort a sad person at all and what he wanted was just being treated like an ordinary person, without sympathy and deliberate kindness and hospitality. And as for the meaning of life, he still had no answer at the end of the book. However, he indicated that people are searching for the meaning of their own life all the time no matter how intelligent and wise they are.When suffering pain and miserable experiences, getting stuck into sadness, trying to seek help from others, or just being fully dependent on blurry concepts will not rescue you. Facing the reality and moving on as soon as possible will be better during the journey of searching for hope and the meaning of life.
The author's writing craft is also the reason why I gave it 5 stars. In the beginning, I thought the stories in chapters of odd numbers and of even numbers were independent and irrelevant. But after finishing several chapters, I found the connections: the roles in the odd number sections (mostly) were the reason why the teenager lost his brother. At the same time, it was the boy, to some extent, became the part of the reasons why the murderer had his tragedy. In conclusion, I really appreciate the author who created this wonderful novel by arranging the sequences of stories which surprised me a lot.
