Summary from GoodReads: In the desert town of Richland, Washington, there stands a giant sycamore tree. Horribly mutated by nuclear waste, it feeds on the life energy of boys that it snags with its living roots. And when Teddy Matthews moves to town, the tree trains its sights on its next victim. 

From the start, Teddy knows something is very wrong with Richland- every kid he meets disappears before his eyes. A trip to the cemetery confirms that these boys are actually dead and trying to lure him to the tree. But that knowledge is no help when Teddy is swept into the tree's world, a dark version of Richland from which there is no escape . . . 

My Review: What a creative take on horror. A sentient sycamore tree is watching and waiting. My 11 year old son is now dying to read this after I told him about it. 

Teddy just moved and his mom works at a nuclear plant. The problem is, boys have been known to go missing from here {I know, as a parent why move there then? But, it works for the book}. As Teddy is making friends, he realizes all is not normal. How do the kids keep disappearing? Is Teddy able to find a solution?

Pick up this book and give your little horror reader a real treat. This book is so creative. I loved it.
