    Bram Stoker Award Winner for Superior Achievement in a Young Adult Novel

    In Adam Cesare’s terrifying young adult debut, Quinn Maybrook finds herself caught in a battle between old and new, tradition and progress - that just may cost her life.

    Quinn Maybrook and her father have moved to tiny, boring Kettle Springs, to find a fresh start. But what they don’t know is that ever since the Baypen Corn Syrup Factory shut down, Kettle Springs has cracked in half. 

    On one side are the adults, who are desperate to make Kettle Springs great again, and on the other are the kids, who want to have fun, make prank videos, and get out of Kettle Springs as quick as they can.

    Kettle Springs is caught in a battle between old and new, tradition and progress. It’s a fight that looks like it will destroy the town. Until Frendo, the Baypen mascot, a creepy clown in a pork-pie hat, goes homicidal and decides that the only way for Kettle Springs to grow back is to cull the rotten crop of kids who live there now.

    short review

    I don't want to spoil anything about the book so I will keep this rather simple: it's gory, it's funny, it has engaging and relatable characters and it is thematically rich. I am now in the tricky spot of desperately wanting to talk about the book with someone but not knowing any other people who read it and the agony of not getting to gush about it to another person is driving me mad. That's as good a praise as I can come up with.

    As for the quality of the audiobook: Jesse Vilinsky does a fantastic job granting the various characters individual identities and voices through which I found them to be easily distinguishable even in more frantic scenes with suddenly changing speakers.

    Overall I cannot recommend this enough for people who can stomach a bit of violence and are into highly suspenseful tales.
