Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley

This book is about a seventeen-year-old boy named Cullen Writer who lives in a small Arkansas town.  A birdwatcher named John Barling thinks he spots a woodpecker that was thought to be extinct in the early 1900s.  After that, Cullen’s town starts to get really weird.  People are getting woodpecker haircuts and eating Lazarus burgers, which is named after the bird that Barling thinks he spotted.  Soon after, Cullen’s brother disappears.  This leads Cullen on a mission to find his brother.
