Yup, I'm giving this one the ol' "5 Star" rating!
Basic premise: Alien shows up on earth, takes over the body of little girl, another alien shows to bring back the other alien who we find out is an escaped "prisoner".
The power within this book is 100% the characters. McCammon gives us such string characters that we have no choice but to get wrapped up in the story. His whole book could have been about the stuggle between the two gangs, or the relationship between Cody and Curt (son and drunk dad), or just about the Hammond family. Heck, even the rich older lady could have been a decent story. But what it all boils down to is he made a book crammed full of wonderful characters, a book where the only REAL bad guy is Stinger. Even the bad guys in the town are not really that bad, with the exception of one person, and he is removed from the game almost as quick as we meet him.
It's books like this that made me fall in love with reading.
