A Child Alone with Strangers

We rated this book:


Nine-year-old Henry Thorne survives an accident that kills his father and leaves him in a coma. When he wakes, Henry discovers he can read people’s thoughts and feelings. The bus company involved in the accident leaves Henry and his aunt and uncle with two million dollars as compensation. When Jim Cady hears about it, he gets a crew together with the idea of ransom. They manage to kidnap Henry and are holed up in a deserted house at the edge of the woods. Besides Henry being A Child Alone with Strangers, these six people will discover there is something else out there that wants what it left in the basement back.

This book is huge but completely worth it. I haven’t read anything that terrifying in a while. If you can’t handle gore, I don’t recommend this book because there is a lot of death right in your face. People die horrifically, even to the point where you start to feel bad for the criminals. However, Henry makes it worthwhile. You can’t help but fall in love with this sweet boy who has had to deal with so much horror. If you love horror, I highly recommend this story.
