Funny coming of age story of an outgoing, acid witted, young gay man in Lexington, Virginia, trying to negotiate Valley high school culture and a military father, but supported by his unconventional mother.
  • Rocket Boys by Homer Hickam
Homer and several of his friends, growing up in a small Virginia coal town in the Sputnik era, become heroes of their town by learning to build and launch rockets. Also a moving and nostalgic portrait of a troubled family living in a simpler, more innocent time.
