Demented . . . Maliciously cunning . . . This scary thriller . . . Ratchets up a high level of dread. --Publishers WeeklyIrresistibly creepy. Reminiscent of classic thrillers . . . from "Psycho" to "Deliverance, " "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" to "Nightmare on Elm Street" -- and not since "Lord of the Flies" have we seen children at the mercy of such meanness from their own kind. --The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
The book unravels with such an unstoppable momentum that cautious as you may be, and as far back as you may stand, you're still going to be stung. -- Jedidiah Ayres, B&N Ransom Notes
Unsettling suspense and chilling tone . . . A disturbing (in a good way) coming-of-age story with one of the creepiest characters to inhabit my imagination in a while - a paralyzed man with "a distinctively reptilian appearance" who might be the devil on Eden Road. --Carole Barrowman, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Grisly Suspense . . . Unimaginable horror. --Kirkus Reviews
Absolutely pitch-perfect . . . Deserving of a place on shelves alongside the all-time classic coming of age stories ever written. --Elizabeth A. White, The Florida Times-Union
