WELCOME TO NOWHERE.
Danny’s dad takes a job as caretaker at a marina on the shore of a vast, frozen lake in Harvest Cove, a tiny town tucked away in Canada’s Big Empty. If you’re looking for somewhere to hide, this is it.
It’s the worst winter in years. One night, running in the dark, Danny is attacked by a creature so strange and terrifying he tries to convince himself he was hallucinating. Then he learns about Native American legends of a monster that’s haunted the lake for a thousand years. And that every generation, in the coldest winters, kids have disappeared into the night. People think they ran away.
Danny knows better. Because now the beast is after him.
Really don’t know what to say about this YA book. I thought it was going somewhere good and it ended up going somewhere different. It just didn’t click with me but I’m not a young adult so that could be why.
Writing is good, monster is creepy but it just fell flat for me. Maybe it was because it was written in the first person and I find those books hard to digest – I always feel like someone is telling me a story rather than engaging me in the story…know what I mean?
