This had it's creepy moments, but was paced more like a YA book. It also dealt with a lot of grief over the brother's death. I was hoping this would be more of a thriller; instead, it was more of an alien book. Just not the book I needed for my students right now.

Older readers and adults may find logical disconnects at a point or two (Who has a CDC location where wireless and internet are spotty at best) and it starts a bit slow, but then someone pours gasoline on its backside and lights a match. From that point on, it's a wild ride with great creep and nonstop action, leading to a Twilight Zone finish. Great book for teen horror fans and one a library should certainly consider adding to their collection. I zipped through in about three hours.

What's wrong with Driftwood Harbor? All the children are polite (or, to quote Garrison Keeler, "above average"), and while the town looks in need of some TLC, people seem happy there. But there are those vitamin shots... and a drowning girl who never drowned... so something is clearly Not Quite Right. Beacon can't believe the changes in his twin sister Everleigh, and his new science-loving friend Arthur suggests they figure out the big secret to Driftwood Harbor. No spoilers, but this is more Tw ...more

it was amazing, and the end had a huge plot twist that leaves you thinking what happens next.
This book has an ending you won't soon forget. Would make a fabulous Halloween series!
