the fates will find their way

The Fates Will Find Their Way, is told through the collective narrative of a group of adolescent boys/adult men who once knew a girl that went missing from their small surburban American town.  Pittard explores the reprocussions of Nora's dissaperance, blending the mythology that the group have created, and re-written, throughtout their lives post-Nora and the retrospection of how this one event effected the rest of their lives. 

The boys deep rooted obsession, and the narative style, instantly reminded me of Jeffrey Eugenides The Virgin Suicides.  Like that novel, there are plenty of stylistic and narrative choices to be enjoyed within this book but don't expect any answers, or any facts that the boys tell to be verified as truth.  An intriguing read, worth a look if you're a fan of this type of angst ridden genre.
