Adam’s memory is very uncertain.
The smell of lilacs. Biking to Monument. A big dog.
Also, there’s something about his dad he cannot seem to remember . . . and whenever he starts to remember he gets terrible headaches.
Brint seems to want to help Adam. Brint also wants to know what Adam remembers. . . .
But who is Brint?
"A horrifying tale . . . the buildup of suspense is terrific." - School Library Journal, Starred"AN ABSORBING, EVEN brilliant job. The book is assembled in mosaic fashion: a tiny chip here, a chip there. . . . Everything is related to something else; everything builds and builds to a fearsome climax. . . . Cormier . . . has the knack of making horror out of the ordinary, as the masters of suspense know how to do." - The New York Times Book Review
