(From the publisher):
It was in November, a Thursday after swim practice.
The thing with Mr. Tracy, Darren's English teacher.
The thing was how Darren would think of it afterward.
The thing that was vague and not-named.
The thing that hadn't happened, anyway.
Darren Flynn has the perfect life—until that day in November.
After that day, after what happened (did it happen?), life is different. Darren is different. Nothing is as it was—before. His friends, his family, even the people who are supposed to be in charge are no longer who Darren thought they were. Who can he trust, now?
This compelling, masterfully written novel by acclaimed author Joyce Carol Oates explores one teenager's search for identity in a complex, deceiving world, and the answers he finds in the most unexpected places.
