Description of this Book

It's cold as I pedal along, the wind like a snake slithering up my sleeves and into my jacket and my pants legs, too. But I keep pedaling.... A boy's search for his father becomes a desperate journey to unlock a secret past. But it is a past that must not be remembered -- if the boy is to survive.

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 <p> From the Trade Paperback edition.
