The Shadow Year by Jeffrey Ford

4 stars
Fun book to read. Reminded me a lot of To Kill a Mockingbird, Stand by Me and The Sandlot. About 2 brothers and their sister in a small town. There is a prowler on the loose looking in windows and they decide to investigate since the police won't. The boys have a model of their town set up in the basement, and pieces start moving of their own accord, or is it their strange younger sister and one of the personalities she has invented? When bodies start showing up they get more than they bargained for, and the pieces on the board start being predictions of what is to come.

I thought this one was really fun as well. I have another of his titles here to read, one of these days.
