Summary

A blend of literary fiction, psychological suspense and supernatural horror from the author of A Head Full of Ghosts.

Late one summer night, Elizabeth Sanderson receives the devastating news that every mother fears: her 13-year-old son, Tommy, has vanished in the woods of a local park. Riddled with worry, pain and guilt, Elizabeth is wholly unprepared for the strange series of events that follow. As the search grows more desperate, and the implications of what happened become more haunting and sinister, no one is prepared for the shocking truth about that night.

Critic reviews

"Brilliantly creepy." ( Library Journal)
"This tense, quick-moving story...is a satisfying piece of fiction that shifts genres underneath the reader." ( Booklist)
"Tremblay expertly ratchets up the suspense until the tension is almost at its breaking point." ( Kirkus Reviews)

The narrator was extremely monochromatic and the story line was that of a children's book. But all and all I suppose it was bearable.
