The Monsters We Make
A fictional story based on factual events, ‘The Monsters We Make’ by Kali White is a mystery, suspense novel based on every parents nightmare – the sudden disappearance of their child. The story begins in August 1984, and a young paperboy Christopher Stewart has gone missing. It just so happens that later that same day, twelve-year-old Sammy Cox hurries home from his own paper route, scared to death but unwilling to tell anyone what has happened. Sammy’s mother is totally oblivious to any changes in his behavior but his older sister begins to sense that something has happened to her brother and starts to investigate and question those around her. Also engaged in this mystery is officer Dale Goodkind who was also involved in the case of another young person who went missing in another town, which went unsolved to his regret.
This is an engrossing tale that makes you realize that your next door neighbor or people you know are not always what they appear to be. This one caught me from the get go as it is based on similar events we have all read about but also had a close experience with and it is haunting.
