Red Piccirilli is a runt, a dreamer, a naive boy with an imaginary friend and little else. But right before summer vacation starts he finds an albino girl trapped in a shed behind a local house. After Red frees her, the world he knew quickly unravels into something more mysterious—an unsteady reality where a man with silver teeth and buzz saw voice points him toward the true meaning of sacrifice.
Lee Thompson is now a "must read" favorite author for me. His writing has an imaginative quality that is so hard to find.
Before Leonora Wakes is a fantastic, dark, coming of age tale. I will be reading this one again.
Are you a coming of age fan? I love a great coming of age story especially when there is an awesome mix of horror and suspense thrown in.
