Let me tell how good and downright creepy this book is. I loved reading it. It had me looking over my shoulder because I could swear that someone was watching me read this book! Sam and his friend get in a car who he thought belong to his friends father. Unfortunately, it did not. And now they are trapped in the hands of a psycho.
Psycho, yes indeed. It reminded me of a good horror movie but for teens. Sam I believe handled it the best. When you are caught in a situation like this, you must get your head straight and think. Sam showed great strength. When his friend freaked and flipped out, Sam pick up the extra slack and stayed smart. I am so proud of him.
Many times I wanted to slap Llyod for slowing down Sam. I empathizes with him and totally understood. But its all about survival of the fittest. If it weren’t for Sam, I’m not sure what would have happen to Lloyd.
The ending was perfect. I love how Ms. Kalhan tied everything up nicely. Nothing left any questions and I loved how she showed the way it affected both boys. Very good. I also like how well she was able to write and express the feelings of the both boys. I was sweating bullets reading this. And of course cheering them on.
All in all, this book is great. Ms. Kalhan took me on a great adventure. I loved the plot and the way it moved. I love her writing style and how she expressed every single emotions, touch, and even smell. Yes, it was that good.
I give it 5 BITES!
