Welcome to Spencer.
It's a backward town—and it's hiding a terrible secret.
When Stephen's dad says they're moving, Stephen knows it's pointless to argue. They're broke from paying Mom's hospital bills, and now the only option left is to live with Stephen's grandmother, a woman as bitter and stuck as the town of Spencer itself.
Stephen's summer starts looking up when he meets punk girl Cara and her charismatic twin brother, Devon. The twins have family problems of their own and aren't exactly close, but Stephen is drawn to them, each for different reasons. With Cara, he feels safe and understood—and yeah, okay, she's totally hot. In Devon and his group, he sees a chance at making real friends.
Only, as the summer presses on, and harmless nights hanging out in the cemetery take a darker turn, Stephen starts to suspect that Devon is less a friend than a leader. And he might be leading them to a very sinister end.
Mixing classic horror elements with a darkly funny coming-of-age story, New York Times bestselling author Heather Brewer brings her razor-sharp edge to a story about the dangerous power of belief and the cost of blind loyalty, taking readers to the brink of madness and past the point of no return.

Auntie Heather strikes again!
Gore, suspense, and amazing style! As expected with Brewer!
From the moment I picked up this book I was hooked. I loved the characters, I loved Heather's writing style, and most of all, I loved how the little Michigan town could've been any small town in the Midwest. I found Stephen to be not only a well-written character, but a character I could've easily related to a different points in my life. This book was dark and creepy, but still so incredibly honest in it's emotions. Part of me wishes that there would be another book, that this was a series and that I could find out what happened to Stephen after all that's happened, but part of me is completely satisfied at the way the story ended.
