Abstract:

This spellbinding story introduces the unforgettable seventeen-year-old narrator, Luke Prescott, who has been brought up in a bohemian matriarchy by his divorced New Age mother, a religious grandmother, and two precocious half-sisters. Having spent a short lifetime swinging agreeably between the poles of Eastern mysticism and New England Puritanism, Luke is fascinated by the new fields of brain science and believes in having evidence for his beliefs. "Without evidence," he declares, "you just have hope, which is nice, but not reliable." Luke is writing his college applications when his father?a famous television star whom he never knew?calls and invites him to Los Angeles for the summer. Luke accepts and is plunged into a world of location shooting, celebrity interviews, glamorous parties, and premieres. As he begins to know the difference between his father?s public persona and his private one, Luke finds himself sorting through his own personal mythology.???? By the end of the summer Luke thinks he has found the answers he?s been seeking, only to discover that the differences between truth and belief are not always easy to spot, and that evidence can be withheld: when Luke returns home, his mother reveals something she knows will change everything for him.???? With -- From the Hardcover edition.
