Billy, a high school senior, has lost a lot in the past year, including his younger sister, Sara. Billy lacks excitement and purpose in life until his curiosity takes him and his best friend, Connor, to an old, abandoned landfill along the river. Connor would rather forget the experience, but Billy can’t help but feel invigorated by their findings. Taking it upon himself to uncover the mystery, Billy finds his life coming full circle – but is that a good or bad thing?

~My Impressions~

This was a very short, only 33 pages, but engaging read. I love a good mystery book and this book has a bit of a Ted Dekker feel to it. I adored the surprise twist right at the end when I though I had everything figured out and knew how the book was going to end, then bam the author turns everything around. I cannot wait to check out some other short stories by this author that I can now easily recommend to others.
