When a new family settles into the rental trailer next door, she meets a young girl who will change Micky–forever. Despite her deformed left leg and withered left hand, nine-year-old Leilani Klonk radiates a buoyant and indomitable spirit that inspires Micky. Beneath Leilani’s effervescence, however, Micky comes to sense a quiet desperation that the girl dares not express. Leilani’s mother is little more than a child herself, and her stepfather is educated but threatening. Slowly, more troubling details emerge in Leilani’s conversations with Micky. Most chilling is Micky’s discovery that Leilani had an older brother, also disabled, who vanished after Maddoc took him into the woods one night and is now (3z(Bgone to the stars.(3y (BWhile the child-protection bureaucracy gives Micky the runaround, the Maddoc family slips away into the night.

This is the first Dean Koontz book that I've read. Now I'm very reluctant to try another.

I thought the book was awful for the first couple of hundred pages, picked up a bit in the middle, and then became a complete bore at the end.

I can understand that rabid Koontz fans would love nearly anything he wrote. But this?

If the book was made to be half the length by Koontz eliminating the constant repetition of the characters thoughts, it would have been quite an improvement.
