About the Book:

A young boy runs away from his abusive home to live in the fort he's built in the middle of a Michigan cornfield. But when a cosmic discovery late one night warps reality into a mutating nightmare, it's up to loyal friends to fix what they can… and bury what they can't.
 A dark coming-of-age tale that melds Color Out of Space with Stand by Me.
