9780765376961: Harrison Squared

Harrison is a lonely teenager, terrified of the ocean since a childhood sailing accident took his father and his right leg. One of the sensitives who are attuned to the supernatural world, Harrison and his mother have just moved to the worst possible place for a boy like him: Dunnsmouth, a Lovecraftian town perched on rocks above the Atlantic, where monsters lurk under the waves, and creepy teachers run the local school. When Harrison's mother, a marine biologist, disappears at sea, his attempts to find her puts him in conflict with a strange church, a knife-wielding killer, and the Deep Ones... It will take all his resources and an unusual host of allies to defeat the danger and find his mother.

Review :

"A thoroughly entertaining novel." "Publishers Weekly"

"""The combination of coming-of-age story, Lovecraftian horror, and mystery is at turns gently funny and intensely scary, a tough balance that Gregory (Afterparty) pulls off successfully." "Library Journal "

"""A tale handled with confidence and control, with loads of salty, piscine atmosphere...Superior, with plenty of crossover teen appeal." "Kirkus Reviews""
