Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Butler
Something is wrong with Nick Barry's face. He has such a terrible rash and such bizarre markings that people find it painful to look at him. Is there something evil about Nick? When he looks in the mirror, he wonders if this is his face. He is an outcast in school and has only one constant friend, Tara. His mother has little to do with Nick since she works most of the time. He had seen a priest, a nun, and a doctor, none of whom can offer any explanation for his appearance. Nick finds a dead kid's diary and with the help of that, Tara, a nun, and a local professor find out what's wrong with him. It is an intense story and would be best offered to an avid reader. It's an education in itself. Reviewer: Naomi Butler
ALAN Review - Molly Landholt
At first, Nick Barry's troubles, although still traumatic to a teenage boy, seem like nothing out of the ordinary: acne, a rise in anger, feelings of isolation and abandonment. However, Nick's case is too severe for anyone to ignore; something "other" is clearly involved. When Nick is suspected of committing acts of violence and murder, he decides to investigate the outside forces that have set their sights on him. This novel, reminiscent of (and referential to) Steven King, couples a thrilling horror story with a message important to early adolescents: No one is alone. Unlike King's work, however, the protagonist is not a tragic hero, but a victorious hero who resists evil. Accessible to adolescent readers, the story moves quickly (although at times a little too quickly), and the shortness of each chapter paired with the size and arrangement of print helps the novel's exciting pace.
