A dark, psychological thriller about a boy's search for himself
Four thousand, three hundred and seventeen stitches, his father had told him once. All the King's horses and all the King's men had put Henry Franks back together again.
One year ago, a terrible accident robbed Henry Franks of his mother and his memories. The past sixteen years have vanished. All he has now are scars and a distant father—the only one who can tell Henry who he is.
If he could trust his father.
Can his nightmares—a sweet little girl calling him Daddy, murderous urges, dead bodies—help him remember?
While a serial killer stalks their small Georgia town, Henry unearths the bitter truth behind his mother's death—and the terrifying secrets of his own dark past.
Sometimes, the only thing worse than forgetting is remembering.
I really enjoyed this book! It was different, and a bit of a retelling of Frankenstein, and yeah, there were just some awesome and creepy things going on in this book, which was just so much fun to read about!
There's the big mystery about Henry, all the stitches, the memory stuff, yeah, all that stuff that had to be investigated! And that was a really great journey to go on, it was interesting, and I wanted to know more about Henry and his missing past!
So that big twist! I was not expecting it! And I really should have! Why else were there all those bits and pieces be there in the first place! So yeah, that was really great to read! The twist was really awesome, featuring so many bits of the book!
I loved how creepy this book was! And that ending was just perfect there, so creepy, so awesome, and I enjoyed reading all about that so much! It made for a really great ending, and the sense at the end of it, what she was doing...was just a little bit terrifying!
Really enjoyed this book, it was pretty darn great!
