Ty Schwamberger's debut novel, Night School, may no longer be available to order in hardcover--discontinued on October25th --but that doesn't mean you can't still purchase it as a handy paperback.
The story sounds good to me, and I placed it on my wish list a while ago. As with many people, money's tight though, but Christmas is fast approaching and who knows what I'll find in my stocking. At least some cash or a gift card so I can order the thing; is that too much to ask for, Santa?
In the meantime, however, check out the book trailer. It may wet your appetite for a scary tale as we head into the colder months. And if you're too cool for Night School, at least gander at the vid or read the plot summary.
Mr. Ben Sanders has gone missing and his infatuated student Brenda is determined to find him. She and Bens friend Tim are concerned his disappearance has something to do with the screams that came from a house on Denison Street and the mutilated bodies that are popping up all over town.
Things are about to become more complex in Brendas life. She uses the skills she has learned from being the community Peeping Tom to play detective and piece together clues to hopefully create a map to Bens location.
During the search for Ben, Brenda & Tim come face to face with seedy characters wandering the streets at night; drugs dealers, prostitutes and oh yes, all those dead bodies.
Who is this maniac running loose on the streets at night? Why does he do it? What does he want?
Brenda and Tim will find out soon enough.
