Chris Cructher is one of my favorite authors for guys. So when this new release came across my desk, I grabbed it up to read. Usually I would tell you about the book before I give my opinion of it, but not this time. This book was a win. Let me tell you how much of a win. I had about 50 pages left and it was in my locker at work to finish on my lunch break. My son got sick and I had to go pick him up. The book was in my locker. With 50 pages left. So, I did what I had to- I paid $11 to download it to iBooks so that I could finish it! And it was worth it.
So, this book is about Paul Baum- better known as Paulie Bomb, all around good guy and incredible athelete. Period 8 is a bunch of kids who get together during their lunch period with their teacher, Logs, and have conversation with each other- bare bones, no holds barred conversations. When one of the crew turns up missing and then shows back up a few days later, each member of the group reveals a little bit about what happened during her disappearance. A sinister plot is revealed and Paul finds himself running for his life.
As I already said, this book is a no questions asked win. It has lots of twists and turns and, even though I figured out a major thing half way through the book, there were still so many pices of the puzzle missing that I was happy to pay that $11 to be able to read the last 50 pages.
