Upon receipt of Carter Johnson's "The House on Dead Boy Lane" late Thursday afternoon, I couldn't wait to read it. I found the cover of the book very mysterious and compelling and having been raised in a very small town, I know that all small towns have places of mystery.

Having read some of "Stephen King's books, (the state of Maine's most famous mystery writer), I thought that I was well-prepared for this type of mystery/horror story.

"The House on Dead Boy Lane" is very well-written and it held my interest right though till the end.

I do feel however that this book would be better suited for the age sixteen and up.

Would I recommend this book to others? YES

Carter Johnson began writing short stories at 11 years old and took up screenwriting soon after. After several attempts at screenwriting and filmmaking, Johnson decided the Hollywood scene was not for him. Instead, he has chosen to expand his short stories and screenplays into novels. He currently lives with his wife in Charlotte, N.C. and is working on his second and third novels.

"The House on Dead Boy Lane" follows Derek, a young teen, as he is uprooted and moved to a small town in North Carolina. Alex, the cute blonde who lives next door, begins showing him around town and cluing him into its history. While exploring a supposedly haunted house, Alex cuts her hand on glass from a window and begins dreaming about the house frequently. As the pair investigates further, the mysteries of the house intensify, as do the puzzles of young love.
