I didn't like this one as much as his first book, but I did enjoy it more than I thought I would.
I won't bother with a plot summary as there are already many, but I do want to say that I like Tremblay's writing style and I particularly liked the characters in this one. You get to know them well and he really gets into the relationships between each one, especially between Tommy and his friends, and Kate and her mother. Some of the story got boring and tedious at times, but it didn't keep me from reading on to find out what happened. As a mother, I have to say that the ending was hard to read, but that's all I will say about that.
If you enjoy mysteries, you might want to give this one a try. I found it to be more of a mystery that a horror book.
