Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley, 228 pages, read by Melody, on 02/26/2012

Great debut novel about a small town boy in Arkansas.  Cullen lives in Lily, Arkansas where nothing ever changes until everything does.  The same day that a man announces that he has seen an extinct woodpecker in the woods, Cullen’s younger brother goes missing.  Told in alternating story lines, Where Things Come Back is about growing up, family, young love, and small town life.  I highly recommend this book.
