Nostalgic high school senior Michael Jackson wants nothing more than to reunite with his friends from elementary school—and possibly change his name. Transferring before middle school after his parents’ nasty divorce, Michael always felt he was at his happiest back in his Oklahoma hometown. Inviting his lifelong crush Catherine, among other former classmates, to a spring break reunion party seems like the perfect plan for Michael to get closure on the formative years of his life.
Yet nothing is as he remembers when Michael finds himself entangled in his own confusion between reality and nightmare. Suddenly, secrets from his childhood resurface, and the fanatic ringleader from Michael’s past will do whatever it takes to silence his friends. Now it’s up to Michael to save them all before it’s too late. But does he have the courage and strength to go up against his own worst enemy?
In this quirky psychological thriller from the mind of Bryant A. Loney, Michael will go through hell and high water as he faces his inner demons, unaware that the revelation he seeks demands the ultimate sacrifice.

I got asked by Verona Booksellers in Tulsa, Oklahoma to write a review of this book.
This review contains no spoilers
To be honest it took me a while to get into this book because the beginning of this book was a bit slow. You’ll get a lot information about Michael his friends and his former classmates but once the action started happening it was impossible for me to put this book down.
The middle of this book was really confusing, I didn’t really know what was going on and what was real and what wasn’t real. There are a lot of twist and turns and you can’t predict what is really going to happen until the end of the book, so that makes it a good book. I personally hate it when you already know what is going to happen when you are only in the middle of the book.
I really loved the characters in this book. There is a lot of diversity going on which I’m sure a lot of people will enjoy.
Also, as a Dutch person, bonus points for the book “Krijg De Tering” Michael is reading, haha!
