Overview
One year following their deaths in a late-night car accident, teenagers Danielle, Marco, and Christopher return, in spirit, to the sleepy New England suburb of Avon. Over the course of the evening, the three will drift into and out of the lives of those who knew and were affected by them. None is more affected than Tim, survivor of the crash, who plots a grisly act of remembrance, and Brooks, the well-intentioned police officer who first discovered the crash and whose life has changed in startling ways since.

The Night Country

This chilling novel from O'Nan is the perfect choice for October book clubs. A modern-day ghost story that takes place in the suburbs of Connecticut, the book centers on the survivors of a tragic car crash that occurred on Halloween. Three teenagers died in the accident, and two lived: Tim, who suffered no injuries, and brain-damaged Kyle, a former bad boy and rebel. A year after the accident, Tim is struggling with survivor's guilt, while Nancy, Kyle's mother, takes on the role of caregiver for her son and fights to maintain her marriage. Watching over them are the ghosts of the three dead teens, Marco, Toe and Danielle, who have their own stories to tell and provide commentary on earthly life as it continues without them. Ominous and haunting, this innovative novel is reminiscent of Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones. A reading group guide is available in print and online at www.picadorusa.com.
