In small town Michigan, Penny, an aspiring journalist, teams up with the nerdy boy-next-door and the town's star quarterback to find her conspiracy theorist father after he goes missing and several other townspeople turn up dead in the woods.
The deeper she digs, the weirder things start to get. Townspeople repeat the same phrases—verbatim. Men in black suits stroll around Main Street. Chunks of her memory go missing. Pretty soon, Penny's research leads her to the long-ago meteorite crash in Bone Lake's woods, and she's going to have to reconsider her definition of "real" if she wants answers. . .
I enjoyed reading this book so much! I loved the mystery, and I loved the characters, of how Penny was the skeptic and Dex is the believer, and they mentioned that they were like the X-Files lead characters, which was so fun to read!
Penny used to believe in all of this, and she used to believe in her dad. But when her dad was going to pretend a bear was Big Foot or something, she stopped. And that's understandable, but it was still sad, the breakdown of their relationship. But coming back home for the summer, to write a article that'll get her into the college she wants to go to, yeah, that's kinda a big deal!
A big part of this book was looking back at the past. Because the breakdown of her parents marriage, it didn't start a year before they got divorced, but much earlier. Given that it's why she and one of her friends became enemies, basically, yeah, it was kinda important to her!
I really enjoyed how it all came together! All the weird stuff, all the different clues, it all came together in a pretty intense ending! Loved how it all worked out, and that while things aren't perfect, they're all healing from the various wounds, physical and emotional!
This book was so awesome, it was so great to read!
