We have a winner! Michael D. from the Clinton Library for his excellent review of Neverland:
Describe the book: A gruesome tale of a normal family vacation/reunion gone to the madhouse. It begins with two cousins, Beau and Sumter. Sumter has christened an old shack Neverland. There, they worship a “god” that Sumter calls Lucy. Neverland becomes their drug, their escape. Until things spiral out of control, and truths reveal themselves. Peter Pan and Tinkerbell do not dwell in this Neverland.What did you think: This book, this horrifying book, gripped my interest until the very end. It made me visualize Beau’s fears like they were my own. Douglas Clegg has now become, just from this one book, my second favorite horror author, comparable to Stephen King. I never have nightmares about books, no matter how terrifying a book is. This book was the first. It invaded my dreams.
Who would you recommend it to: Adult horror buffs & brave teens would enjoy this.

Michael's review was selected from over 4000, narrowed down by librarians at each library nominating their favorites, then voted on by teen librarians. This process took longer than we anticipated, so I apologize for keeping you all in suspense for so long!
Michael will be presented with the iPod Touch at his local library soon.
