Christine Lakin's superb narration of this horror novel from the author of THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER immerses listeners in the gruesome. Christopher and his mother, Kate, finally settle in Pennsylvania after years of moving around. But what they thought was a safe and secure home turns out to be a playground for something sinister. When Christopher disappears for six days in the forest, Kate never expects it will be the start of a battle against evil forces. Lakin is exceptional in portraying the story's many characters: seven-year-old Christopher, fierce Kate, an intrepid sheriff, a soft-voiced gentleman dubbed the "Nice Man," and the "hissing lady." As Christopher uncovers mysteries, Lakin's multifaceted voice creates a mood of dread. Despite the work's length, Lakin keeps listeners engaged. A.C.
