I absolutely loved this book. Yes, there was swearing and violence, but nothing too graphic. If you liked Stephen King's The Stand you'll like this.
Not so much. In 7 chapters, I encountered 2 creepy characters with foul mouths. Really marred the narrative. Maybe I should start previewing narrators. Also the adult narrating a child character was eery. Because of the description, I really wanted to like this one. Yesterbook's Gone.
