Summary
When her fourteen-year-old son disappears during a summer sleepover at Devil's Rock, Elizabeth and other residents of the town begin to see his ghost throughout the town, which leads her to believe that he is dead. She tries to maintain a sense of calm to help her younger daughter, Katie, but her anxiety builds when she begins to find crumpled pages of Tommy's journal which contain disturbing connections between Tommy's father's death, a stranger named Arnold, and a macabre folk tale
Summary
Late one summer night, Elizabeth Sanderson receives the devastating news that every mother fears: her 13-year-old son, Tommy, has vanished in the woods of a local park. Riddled with worry, pain and guilt, Elizabeth is wholly unprepared for the strange series of events that follow. She believes a wraithlike apparition of Tommy materializes in her bedroom, while Kate and other local residents claim to see a shadowy figure peering through their windows in the dead of night. Then, random pages torn from Tommy's journals begin to mysteriously appear--entries that reveal an introverted teenager obsessed with the loss of his father, killed in a drunk-driving accident a decade earlier, a folktale involving the devil and the woods of Borderland a horrific incident that Tommy believed connected them all.
