Publisher's Summary

Part Hitchcock, part Hinton, this first-ever standalone novel from Heather Brewer, New York Times best-selling author of the acclaimed Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series, uses classic horror elements to tell a darkly funny coming-of-age story about the dangerous power of belief and the cost of blind loyalty.

When Stephen's dad says they're moving, Stephen knows it's pointless to argue. They're broke from paying Mom's hospital bills, and now the only option left is to live with Stephen's grandmother in Spencer, a backward small town that's like something out of The Twilight Zone. Population: 814.

Stephen's summer starts looking up when he meets punk girl Cara and her charismatic twin brother, Devon. With Cara he feels safe and understood - and yeah, okay, she's totally hot. In Devon and his group, he sees a chance at making real friends. Only as the summer presses on, and harmless nights hanging out in the cemetery take a darker turn, Stephen starts to suspect that Devon is less a friend than a leader. And he might be leading them to a very sinister end....

    Story
    "A creepy tale that promised so much more."

    I was so excited to listen to this story, and in the first 25 mins I thought I was in for a terrific an exciting ride. Unfortunately, our little hero’s up bursts of teenage hormones at the most inconvenient times kept taking me right out the story and killing the suspense feel. Maybe it was the fact that this was one the few times I got a romance story from a boy’s point a view..LOL – What brings me to the romance and not the strongest point of this story for me, I never felt a great connection between the protagonists.

    It’s not all bad. It has its moments, and it could have been a very cool creepy tale, and at times it was totally creepy. But somehow the whole plot fizzled out for me, and left me with more points that were just OK than those I loved.

    I did like the protagonist, Stephen; his inner monologue was entertaining, and since we get the story from his point of view it wasn’t all bad.

    I like how touching and real I found his relationship with father.
    I also found some brilliant writing moments that kept me in the story until the end.

    All in all, it’s not all bad, I just though it could have been better.

    Genre: YA Horror
    Sensuality: Warm

    NARRATION
    I have to give props to narrator Keith Heyborne for his efforts to inject the story to with perfect creepy and suspenseful feel, and at times he totally succeeded.

    Unfortunately, the text failed him a few times and it stopped him from delivering a great horror tale about a small town that promised a lot, and maybe I was just expecting so much more.
    I can't in no way blame his performance for my lukewarm feelings , after all, he kept me in the story until the end.
