Publisher's Summary

Deep in the heart of Appalachia stands a crooked farmhouse miles from any road. The Morrows keep to themselves, and it's served them well so far. When girls go missing off the side of the highway, the cops don't knock on their door. Which is a good thing, seeing what's buried in the Morrows' backyard.
But 19-year-old Michael Morrow isn't like the rest of his family. He doesn't take pleasure in the screams that echo through the trees. Michael pines for normalcy, and he's sure that someday he'll see the world beyond West Virginia. When he meets Alice, a pretty girl working at a record shop in the small nearby town of Dahlia, he's immediately smitten. For a moment he nearly forgets about the monster he's become. But his brother, Rebel, is all too eager to remind Michael of his place....

"This relentlessly grim tale is most definitely not for the squeamish, but it's nearly impossible to put down." (Publishers Weekly)

Very messed up book!

Book grabbed my attention from the start and flew through it in 3 days. Definitely recommend if looking for a jacked up book to keep your mind wondering!

Worth the credit.

In my love them or leave them world - this was a love them book. I notice many reviewers seem to leave a critique of the book - and if I am supposed to do that - pardon me.

I feel as though my responsibility to another potential reader is not to provide a step by step "grading" of the book but to simply state if I personally enjoyed the book and thought it was both time and money well spent.

In this case Brother meets both of those criteria and I am glad that it is now a part of my library.
