Distraught after a breakup, college student Devin Jones takes a job as a carny at a creepy North Carolina amusement park in the summer of 1973. What could possibly go wrong? Besides the life of a child being put at risk and a murderer roaming on the loose, not much. Stephen King, master of thrills and chills, cooks up another story to set you on the edge of your seat. It's a quick read (288 pages) but the coming-of-age story that King interweaves with the mystery will linger with you long after you finish.
