Overview

It’s the summer of 1982 and in Corona, California four boys find themselves doing what all boys normally do during a school break; exploring, playing ball and collecting bottles from a construction site in order to cash them in for money. Steve, Jason, Cory and Ricky have lived on the same street for years and have played there, carefree ever since. But when a serial killer invades their small city they find themselves caught up in a series of grisly murders that brings them face to face with a menace that the authorities have named: the Sesame Street Killer.

The oldest, Steve, reads the others the newspaper articles depicting the killings and after a second girl goes missing they find themselves exploring a massive California pepper tree and stumble upon a lost dog that proves to be more than it seems. Its beautiful, golden eyes seem to see more than the boys themselves can.

Steve comes from a broken home; his father has left years ago and he now suffers abuse at the hands of a sadistic older brother while trying to prevent the same abuse form happening to his younger sister.

Jason, the rational one of the four, must look into his heart to keep his friends on the right path, the path that leads into their futures.

Cory is the wild one, the mischief maker, and wherever he goes, trouble follows. He chooses to fight older kids, argues with adults and curses constantly. He will put the other boy’s lives on the line and will have to help correct the wrongs he’s done. But the one challenge he will need to overcome the most will be himself.

Ricky, the youngest, has been sleeping badly. For weeks he’s had nightmares that he calls the Dark Dreams, dreams of popping bubbles and screaming voices that foreshadow future events. But he is put to the ultimate test when he realizes that his darkest dream is yet to come.

Frisbee will take you back to your childhood, to a time when it was cool to wear surfer shorts and Vans slip-ons. It will take you back to the convenience store where you played your first games of Asteroids and Pac-Man. But worst of all it will take you to a place of extreme evil, a place that the Sesame Street Killer calls: the Shelter.

    Good

    This book was about 840 pages long. It was a coming of age book about four boys and a summer unlike any other. It reminded me a little of Stand By Me, only gritter and more intense, quite a bit like the writtings of Dean Koontz or Stephen King. The author had a problem with words that sound the same, but have different spelling and meaning, such as strait used for straight, were, wear and we' re and their, there, just mention a few. A lot of sentences had left out, added words or both, convoluting them to the point of senseless jibberish. Punctuation was also very poor. I did not care for 8 to 12 year olds cursing like old sailors. There is also child sexual abuse. This is a intense plot which has murder, mystery, supense, extra sensory perception, a mention of religion, frendship and love of family. The plot is great and I enjoyed this book very much. I was unsure of the killer until the capture, which was a nice bonus. The ending could have been better, but it was still satisfactory. I would recommend this book for mature readers, ages fourteen and up, if they like Stephen King or Dean Koontz books, (and their parents let them read this type of book) many younger readers might find the length of this book intimadating. Male and female readers would enjoy this book. I would have given it five stars if the editing had been better.

    Good Mystery

    Well written and suspenseful. Story of young boys in the 1980s with a child killer in the neighborhood. I can usually guess the killer, but not in this book! I think the book could have been shorter. It's 800+ pages, and the first 400 pages are the boys playing, building tree house, talking, coming of age. 400 pages in before "Frisbee" is introduced.

    Lots of typos and grammatical errors, but overall a good read!

    Great book.

    This was a great " Stand By Me" kind of book. Really related to the characters and the story was well written. It is the kind of book that you think about for awhile after you've finished reading it.

    Great

    Great story. It pulls you in from page one and you are thrust back in time to the early eighties where you are a kid again, before the world turned bad. Just when you thought you knew who the killer was, the author threw a curve and you think, hmmm ok. Maybe its this one. When the reveal came it shocks you because its the last person you would have thought of. Great effort. Hope this author writes more.

    Excellent

    Great plot and flow throughout the novel that made this book believable. There is foul language in this book but it is real in the situations the characters faced.

    Great story

    I loved this story which is reminisent of Stand By Me with 4 preteen boyhood friends. However the author really has a problem differentiating between words like there & their, new & knew, quit & quite, where & were. Otherwise it was 5 stars.

    This book was well written. The story reminded me of Stand by me. I hope this author continues to write more stories.

    Great story

    I thought the book was well written - despite the many typos. Think someone did a global search and replace backword - "from" was "form" every time. The typos didn't detract from the story though. It kept me interested and I enjoyed the characters. Was surprised at the outcome. I would definitely read another book by this author.

    A good read

    I would have given this 5 stars if it were not for all the grammatical errors. They are the type of errors that a spell checker wouldn't catch, so it is not as annoying as other books I have read. If you can see past that, this is a great story by a talented author. Well worth the read.

    Couldn't finish it ... 1st half more boyhood memoir than mystery

    This book is way too long, and I couldn't get even halfway through it before losing interest. I started out intrigued but then I found the childhood flashbacks unnecessarily long and drawn out to keep me engaged in the main story. The part I read was more boyhood memoir than mystery. Based on other reviews, maybe if I'd stuck it out and skimmed through another 100 pages, it might have gotten better.
