Year's Scariest Book?
Kids, watch out! If your parents start throwing around brochures for a "gated" community called Candor, run for the hills! Candor is located in Florida. This guy, Campbell Banks bought up land for the perfect community. Families are flocking to get in. Everything is absolutely perfect. No garbage in the streets, everyone is polite and helpful. All the kids are academic overachievers headed for colleges like Yale. No sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll here. Campbell's son Oliver knows the secret. For a price he'll get you out. What do you think happens when Oliver meets a new girl who hasn't been taken in by Candor yet? Yup, and that's when Oliver's perfect scam starts to unravel. There's another side to Candor, and it isn't pretty. Even the founder's son isn't immune. Candor by Pam Bachorz is one scary read.
