This book is not quite like anything else I've read before. It is about the five beautiful Lisbon sisters, who are being raised in an extremely strict home. The story is told from the perspective of the neighborhood boys who obsess over them and begins with the reveal that all of the sisters have killed themselves. The narrator then goes back to the beginning. We follow the Lisbon sisters after the youngest in the family kills herself and the rest of the family tries to deal. The girls are in their teens and are prohibited from fully exploring their beauty and sexuality by their fearful and overprotective mother. This book seems far-fetched, but also rings of deep truths about coming of age in America. I would recommend this book for readers who enjoy a book for a good story that is written well.
A tale set in 1970s suburbia follows the experiences of a group of men whose lives have been irrevocably changed by their obsessions with five doomed sisters, a sibling group that committed a dramatic mass suicide. Reprint.
