A black comedy story based on a horror painting and vastly inspired by Stephen King's Needful Things.
When 17-year-old Dale Stevens comes to spend his summer at his aunt's house in the desolate woods of upstate California, he expects the most boring 90 days of his life. But his expectations change rapidly after he meets a mysterious stranger in the woods and discovers things about himself, his body, and his soul that he knew nothing about.

Love, angst, and evil - the best teen traits!
creepy teen love
The scene with the cow was horribly creepy, and it will stay with me.
He did a great job showing Dale's teenage immaturity mixing with murderous evil.
The ending, where it described Chris in the woods.
This book made me laugh, shake my head, and cringe in turns. It was very different from the genres I usually read/listen to. If you don't go into it expecting a romantic HEA, it is very entertaining. It also makes you think about where evil actually comes from, another being or from the human heart. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
Good novel just not my cup of tea
