Summary
A father tells his autistic son that one of his Boy Scout friends has taken his life while on a scout camp retreat in Michigan. Sparky seems to already know. When they head to the camp to show support, Sparky is convinced that someone-- or something made Malcolm do it. This is just one of the many bizarre happenings in and around the camp and it becomes very clear that this is not a cut and dry suicidal event
Summary
Two wooded preserves on different continents harbor mysterious entities that drive people who enter the woods to suicide. When a whole Boy Scout troop camping in contemporary Michigan does just that, Sparky Wallace, an Asperger’s-afflicted teen whose best friend was on that trip, isn't surprised. Sparky's widowed father, Jack, is reluctant to get involved in investigating the deaths -- until he learns of a possible connection between the Michigan suicides and his grandfather's unexplained disappearance in a Polish forest during World War II. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
