#spookyfriendsbookclub: July 2018 – Colony of the Lost

The Book:

This month, fellow littens voted and selected the title Colony of the Lost by Derik Cavignano. Here’s the synopsis:


When the children of Glenwood begin vanishing one by one, baffling local and federal authorities alike, the idyllic New England suburb becomes anything but a utopia.


Built upon the ruins of a lost colony, Glenwood is home to a long-forgotten secret, and when three strangers are lured into the midnight woods by the phantom of a Puritan boy, they discover the truth of the town’s dark past and must face a vision of its bloody future.


Together, this unlikely trio–Jay, an alcoholic school teacher, Tim, a wise-cracking new kid in town, and Sarah, a nine-year-old with a handful of imaginary friends–must find a way to rescue the town from a terrifying supernatural force to prevent history from repeating itself.

The title was a finalist in the Silver Falchion Award for 2016.
