Jack is practically invisible at home, but when his parents send him to Hazelwood, Iowa, to spend a summer with his odd aunt and uncle, he suddenly makes friends, is beaten up by the town bully, and is plotted against by the richest man in town.
Annotation:
Magical realism, horror, and eerie mystery darkly cloak this sharp, well-written middle grade novel. After a lifetime spent being utterly overlooked, Jack finds himself bizarrely at the center of attention when he moves in with his exotic aunt and uncle in Hazelwood, Iowa. Suddenly, everyone seems to be aware of him--a girl named Wendy wants to be friends, the school bullies beat him up, and in one case, there's a disturbing plot to kill him. Even his family's unique purple house seems to be onto Jack. Forced to dig into the town's past and find out why children went missing, Jack finds himself unraveling in a deep, disturbing history that he is at the center of.

Praise

"A truly splendid amalgamation of mystery, magic and creeping horror will spellbind the middle-grade set...An enticing read that is certain to keep both the hero and audience guessing at every carefully plotted reveal." 06/15/2011
