From the bestselling storyteller Orson Scott Card comes a gripping story of terror within a small town.

Step Fletcher, his pregnant wife DeAnne, and their three children move to Steuben, North Carolina, with high hopes. But Step’s new job with a software company turns out to be a snake pit, and eight-year-old Stevie’s school is worse, an unending parade of misery and disaster. As Stevie retreats into himself, focusing more and more on a mysterious computer game and a growing troop of imaginary friends, the Fletchers’ concern turns to terror. There is something eerie about his loyal, invisible new playmates: each shares the name of a child who has recently vanished from the sleepy Southern town. And as evil strikes out from the most trusted corners, it’s suddenly clear that Stevie is next on the list.

    " I guess I've been on a Orson Scott Card kick...but enjoy his writing. I liked that this book was about a mormon family, but a family struggling with some serious issues. Read the book in a few days...the ending was a shocker! "

    " So good! Genuinely entertaining from beginning to end and a humorous, insightful look into LDS culture. Much better than a formulaic mystery but I was disappointed to have it figured out before the end. "

    " I think I would have been able to enjoy this book more if I didn't know what it was about ahead of time. I hate it when a synopsis on the back cover of a book is enough to ruin the experience for you! I spent each paragraph waiting for the other shoe to drop, instead of getting to enjoy the story coming to life in its own time. Which makes it hard to be able to judge it subjectively as a whole, looking back on it. I almost want to re-read it so I don't have the suspense hanging over my head the whole time. Anyway, it was a weird experience since what-the-back-cover-promised-the-book-was-about wasn't even mentioned until quite close to the end. The end was the best part, though-- it felt like everything they'd taught you about the main characters really got to shine through. I don't think I'd recommend this book to many people, but I did find it worthwhile. The thing about Orson Scott Card is that each of his books that I've read so far contains truth about real life, veiled as fiction. The main wife & husband act like a real couple, which is great to read. "

    " Very creepy. A mixture of the horror of missing children with a smattering of the supernatural. "
