Good book,couldn't put it down .
I wish I had this kind of imagination. I can't believe I didn't figure it out until the last two pages.
“NOTHING LASTS”, but some things do. "Ever wonder about the secrets people keep" is a recurring theme is this creepy and chilling novel of growing up too early amongst mysteries perhaps left alone . Noah Berkley moves to the family home with his dad after the death of his beloved grandfather and meets his childhood friend, Derek. His dad has left Noah’s mother leaving Noah an emotional mess and Derek befriends him. Noah falls in love just as his life also begins to fall apart in ways he could never imagine and to confuse him even more, his dad is in love with Derek’s mother Erin. I found the characters in this novel by Glen Krisch not only lifelike, but also disturbing. The plot has twists and turns and just as soon as the reader believes they have figured out where it is taking them, Krisch throws the story in a different direction. The story flows well and the climax is thrilling with an anti-climax that is even more surprising. I can easily imagine the events in this novel occurring and the manner in which the characters act is not unreal. A very creepy novel that takes 25 years to resolve. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it to readers that like growing of age types of books that reflect small town horrors. I enthusiastically give this novel 5 stars.
