No one believes Fletcher Lee when he says he sees someone lurking in the shadows. Removed from his middle school for frightening the other children, 13 year old Fletcher is forced into psychotherapy where his visions are believed to be the result of a traumatic childhood experience. Pressured into reliving his worst nightmares, Fletcher's torments grow until they can no longer be written off as mere hallucinations. When Fletcher's state deteriorates to the point of causing harm to his psychologist, Dr.Kendrick turns away from conventional medicine and discovers a much more troubling, supernatural answer. Without enough time to rescue Fletcher, Dr. Kendrick must make a choice: is she strong enough to risk her soul to find him?
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I am just so confused after reading this book. I have so many questions. And not in a good way.
The premise of the book sounded really good, but the execution fell sadly short. It just seemed so disjointed and fast and incomplete. Without giving spoilers, it’s hard to articulate all my questions, but there is a group of people that just appear in the story, and they apparently become important, but I don’t know where they came from or really how they are.
Fletcher’s story started off quite good. He’s obviously different and has some kind of ability that is causing him trouble. That part starts so well, and I really started to get into it, and was looking forward to learning what he could do and why, and there appeared to be a mystery around his mother’s death that would hopefully be solved. But then he went to his neighbour’s house, and everything fell apart.
After that point, the story felt like a bunch of ideas thrown onto the page, without much development, connection, or explanation. It was just too short, and unwritten, and very disappointing.
