    When all else fails (ie when google search fails) I'm only left with FSU for the rescue!

    I'm wondering if someone can help me figure out the title of a book I read a few years ago. It was one of the novels we read for an English class in high school, and my friend and I just can't remember the name of the book. I think the main theme in the book was good vs. evil (doesn't that narrow it down? :p ) It was a family drama where an "evil" character with connections/relations with various members of the family enters back to their lives, and their lives spiral out of control. A lot of people die in the end, and I think someone drowns in a pool. The one event that really sticks in my head was this chapter where one of the characters (who is gay) was I think describing the first time he realized he was gay, and that's by staring at a greek statue of a man, and he found himself licking the statue (and I think the evil man saw him and that how they first met) you can't get an image like that out of your head!

    I know this short summary is full of "I think" and "maybe" and barely any details, but if any of it rings a bell to anyone who knows the name of the book, I'll be very grateful :encore::encore:

    Thank youuuu!

    I have no idea, but I wish I had gone to your school.
