Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review A horrifying tale . . . the buildup of suspense is terrific. - School Library Journal, Starred <br> AN ABSORBING, EVEN brilliant job. The book is assembled in mosaic fashion: a tiny chip here, a chip there. . . . Everything is related to something else; everything builds and builds to a fearsome climax. . . . Cormier . . . has the knack of making horror out of the ordinary, as the masters of suspense know how to do. - The New York Times Book Review
