"A ramble through the luxury, entitlement, and what passes for adolescent rebellion in an upper middle class (really lower upper class) Midwestern suburb. The emergence of an "outsider" with a dark side is what adds, somewhat ploddingly, some spice to the story. Well-written and feels authentic. If you've lived it or read John Cheever or Richard Ford, it may not be very compelling. However, if this is new territory for the reader, it could be fascinating."
