Overview

With a wholly original voice, this stunning debut novel captures the overwhelming transformation from childhood to adolescence

An ordinary suburban Connecticut summer in the seventies is the stage for the miraculous world of Timmy. Twelve years old and full of boundless curiosity, Timmy lives an ever-expanding life of record collections (of which Elton John is king), neighborhood bullies (of whom Franky DiLorenzo rules), best friends, and the darker, more lasting secrets of family. Over the course of the summer, Timmy will kill a frog, lose his baseball-card collection, alienate a friend, and witness his parents’ separation. An intruder will hide in his treehouse; his mother will threaten divorce; his father will move out and back in. Timmy’s childhood will end and his adolescence begin.

One of the most remarkable child narrators to come along in recent years, Timmy is the achievement of a stunning new voice in American fiction. In the Cherry Tree is an addictively clever and appealing novel of our universal coming of age.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Rather plodding but appealingly homely, this first novel has the feel of an old family album. In a series of grainy snapshots, Pope chronicles the coming of age of 12-year-old Timmy during the summer of 1974 in suburban Connecticut. Timmy's father ("The Dad") is a boozing, gambling, happy-go-lucky Italian-American builder; his mother ("The Mom") is a no-nonsense Nova Scotia WASP. Timmy spends his time hanging out with his cronies, climbing cherry trees, listening to Elton John, going to movies, masturbating, discovering girls, teasing his older brother and sister and observing the neighborhood's idiosyncrasies. Egged on by his sadistic best pal, Stev (the friends drop the "e" at the end of names), Timmy torments feckless Tony, another neighborhood kid, but draws the line at killing frogs, another of Stev's favorite pastimes. As his parents' marriage slowly disintegrates-mainly because the Mom incessantly nags the Dad about his habit of playing golf and boozing during business hours-Timmy is jarred from his idyllic idling. His dog is killed, and when Stev comes home from camp he betrays Timmy by gambling away Timmy's baseball cards to gain favor with the neighborhood toughs. Pope never builds up much narrative steam with his episodic storytelling, and Timmy's voice is not particularly distinctive (despite his earnest cataloguing of boners and mammoth farts). There is a warmth and authenticity to Timmy's interactions with his parents and siblings, but even the heavy sprinkling of '70s cultural references fails to create much edge. 8-city author tour.

Library Journal
For a 12-year-old boy, summers can still be magical-an endless vista of unscheduled days ready to be explored. So it seems, at least, to Timmy. He expects his summer to be filled with making lists, hanging out with friends, and watching TV. What he doesn't expect is a summer filled with change and loss. Over the course of this summer, Timmy will see his parents separate and his dog die; he will be betrayed by his best friend and terrified by the onset of puberty. Being the kind of child who keeps notebooks full of lists on weekly music favorites and TV trivia and possessing the standard self-centeredness of a 12-year-old, Timmy is as much concerned about getting a list right as he is about any of his battles. As events unfold in his corner of 1970s suburbia, he bobs along, slowly losing pieces of his innocence but never his hope. What makes this coming-of-age novel (Pope's first) appealing is Timmy's voice, which is not overly innocent or wise but aptly low-key and ordinary. While the 1970s background will appeal to nostalgic adult readers, teenagers will also enjoy this book. Recommended for public library collections.-Jan Blodgett, Davidson Coll.

Kirkus Reviews
A boy's turbulent coming-of-age in suburban Connecticut during the 1970s. It's not easy to be nostalgic about the era of Watergate, Gerald Ford, and the leisure suit, but when you're 12 the world can look exciting no matter where you meet it. Our hero Timmy, on the cusp of adolescence, still lives mainly within the confines of family squabbles and schoolboy pranks, but he's beginning to pick up hints that life is not all beer and skittles. His parents seem to be breaking up, for one thing: They have very different tastes (Mom a straitlaced Protestant, Dad a volatile Italian Catholic) and argue nonstop. Plus, Dad seems to have a girlfriend on the side. Timmy has played doctor with Sissi Mandelbaum, but he's still more interested in hanging out with Sissi's brother Steve and Tony ("the Tiger") Papadakis. Timmy, the baby of the family, tends to follow the lead of his brother Albert, while sister Daphne is siding with their father in his marital feuds-especially after his mother throws Dad out of the house. Dad is no less shocked than the children, but he eventually makes it up to Mom and returns home a few months later to start all over again. Newcomer Pope gives us a portrait of an age as much as anything else, and the daily referents in Timmy's life-Elton John, The Poseidon Adventure, Happy Days, Richard Nixon-suffuse the story like water in an aquarium. If it all seems somewhat haphazardly thrown together and without a clear focus or sense of direction-well, that's what childhood is like. Still, this modest and appealing debut meanders too much for its own good and never acquires enough shape or shading.Agent: Esmond Harmsworth/Zachary Shuster Harmsworth

    Whitetail

    'Whitetail- She is a very slendor white shecat. She isn't lanky, but narrow bodied and long legged. She had a black front left leg, seven black flecks on her back like small fawn marking, a black ear and tailtip. ??? Whitetail has a quick temper, impulsive and firey personality. She has no trouble speaking her mind, and is very explorative. ??? She was kitnapped at a very young age by a cat named Shadowstar. Shadowstar had taken over Grasclan and ruled as an evil amd horrible leader. He controlled everything, and at one point made Goldenstripe and Whitetail become mates. Goldenstripe left when he rid himself of Shadowstar long enough to escape, as Whitetail wouldn't admit to having any feelings for him. She found him moons later in Horseclan with Lilywolf and decided to join. Lilywolf later disappeared and after some time Whitetail told Goldenstripe how she felt. He said no, that he would wait for Lilywolf, and Whitetail left. She returned, because she had been unsuccessful in finding another clan to call home.

    Lilystar's Bio

    Lilystar is a beautiful light gray tabby shecat with ice blue eyes. This tabby is very loving to friends and family, fierce with enemies, and she always will stay loyal to Horseclan and the Warrior Code. She has no fear of standing up for what she believes is right. She has an extremely long and complex history which I will try to sum up here. Lilystar was born into a family of loners who lived on a farm near a twoleg place. Her mother, Wolf, was loving to Lily and her sister, Rose. Rose had been born with limited abilities (special ed.) which led Wolf to have to spend all her time monitoring her tiny kit. Lily's father, Fang, was a hard worker and kept the family well fed. Everything was perfect. Until one day when Fang disappeared. Fearing the worst, Lily was sent to find him while her mother watched Rose. She tracked him down in a twoleg place and there she witnessed something that chilled her to the bones. Her father was apart of a group that believed only they were chosen to go to a place they called paradise (Starclan). They believed that they would all go there soon and that all left behind would suffer. Lily's father had never spoken of this to the small family and Lily knew she must tell her mother. However as she turned to flee, her father saw her and persued her. She realized he had become totally insane. Nothing he said made any sense and fear filled her. Her father caught and pinned her while on a thunderpath. Spitting his crazed thoughts in her face, he didn't even notice the monster coming. She managed to heave him off just as the monster hit. With her father dead, she went and explained everything to her mother. The family was forced to move, fearing the nearby evil group. They moved to a forest and life was hard now that her mother had to hunt. But they managed to survive and Lily left her family when she was grown. On the search for fire opals, since she had always loved the beautiful stones, she stumbled across a large group of cats, Horseclan led by Sunnystar. She decided to join as a fresh start and also found the light blue fire opal she'd been searching for. She carved it into the shape of a wolf in honor of the warrior name she'd decided to give herself, Lilywolf. Lilywolf loved clan life and was soon Sunnystar's deputy. When her leader died of old age, the clan was in tatters. With Mistypetal and Spiritwhisper, the tabby managed to rebuild the clan and many new cats joined, including her best friend Fawnstep and her deputy Braveheart. One day a golden tom joined and began to pay attention to her. Goldenstripe and her were soon inseperable and became mates. They loved each other more than anything and tried a long time for kits. Finally Lilywolf gave birth to Wolfsun but lost her third life in the process (she had lost the first to Silvermoonstar and the second in a fox attack. Her fourth was lost when she was hit by a monster). The tabby loved her daughter but soon Goldenstripe was given a prophecy (legit) that said "The silver lily will thrive until the golden sun destroys it." The terrified couple loved each other more than ever but eventually the prophecy came true. When the clan thought Goldenstripe had died, Lilystar became lost after she wandered in grief. She eventually returned to a changed clan. Realizing the clan had moved on and most of her warriors having vanished, the tabby became a warrior under Velvetstar. ~ Life Of Lilystar P.S. Go to the next result to learn about LilyWOLF's life.

She will always be there to listen and give advice. She is fiercely loyal and protective, standing up for others, but not always herself. An indescisive optimist and her self-esteem is very low
