The Virgin Suicides centers around the five Lisbon sisters, who commit suicide one by one in 1970s suburbia. This book is odd, even creepy, but I enjoy it and think that it has something to say about repression and sadness lurking just underneath a happy veneer. I particularly like the author's choice to tell the story from the point-of-view of the faceless neighborhood boys who loved the sisters.
