This was a good one! Lots of mystery and strange happenings are going on in an area ravaged by a hurricane. There is much more going on than just storm damage though. The main character comes back to his hometown to assist his parents with the recovery. Simple enough, right? Well, that is until the bathroom scene hits you. I’ll just say it’s unforgettable and leave it at that. The entire book is just strange. Ford provides the perfect amount of mystery to keep your curiosity piqued throughout the entire book and finishes everything with a great ending. If you’re a fan of weird horror, this super quick read should be on your list.
