Adam is going to Rutterburg, Vermont to see his father in the hospital. It is around 10:00 am on an early fall morning and he is going on his bicycle. There are several clues that indicate something fishy is going on. He left his house without telling anyone good-by, he wrapped a present for his father in aluminum foil, and he is confident a number of dogs will attack him on his journey. In the second chapter, Adam is visiting with a doctor and remembering, or trying to remember, the significant events of his life.

The other day a girl in class shared, “In this book, Robert Cormier messes with your head.” I concur with her assessment. I heard her comment before I read the book, so I read carefully and tried to discern what was actually happening all through the story. I have to admit, I was still pondering it after finishing the book. He is a masterful storyteller and I am still chuckling that he got me again.
