Hilliary (hilliary-ca) | -1 comments Coming of age YA fiction. I think this was an 80's book , both published in and set in. 5 brothers, from late high school age down to elementary age, leave their home in the Midwest together. I think they stole their father's car in order to leave home, but not sure. The second oldest (the artistic one) finds a girlfriend he stays with. The rest of the boys keep traveling and end up somewhere beachy, where they find an apartment, the oldest works, the next youngest works part-time, and the school age ones get enrolled in school by the oldest. It was in English and was a hardbound. Thank you for your help!

If not, do you remember why the boys left home?

Hilliary (hilliary-ca) | -1 comments I think this is it! At least the cover looks familiar and the names seem familiar, too. I don't want to mark it as solved until the library gets it to me, and I verify, but By George, I think you got it!! Thank you!
