Fifteen-year-old Matthew Moore seems to have a charmed life . . . until a mysterious fire forces his grandmother to move in with his family. The elderly woman insists on recreating the bedroom of Cynthia, her favored child who died tragically more than a decade ago. Soon Matt's life insidiously begins to change. At night he finds himself haunted by nightmares of unimaginable terror. In the morning the smell of Cynthia's perfume seems to linger in his room. While his grandmother drives a wedge between his once devoted parents, Matt transforms from a gregarious teenager to a hostile loner. Then a shocking tragedy shatters the family beyond repair--as a horrific shadow from the past takes on an implacable life of its own, clawing toward Matt with ferocious hunger. . . .

Hey guys! I'm done reading Susannah's Garden! The book was okay, but I didn't jump up and down. Hehehe. You'll learn all my thoughts on Susannah's Garden when I'm done writing my review on it.

It's been a while since I last read a John Saul book, and I think it's about time to read his books again. It's also a new purchased book. I bought this at our local book sale store. When I saw it on the bookstore I immediately took it to the counter.

Nightshade was first published in 2000. It was also selected by the Literary Guild, The Doubleday Book Club and The Mystery Guild. Wow...I'm expecting so much from Nightshade and I hope it won't disappoint me... Hehehe. Cheerz!
