Gabriel Ashe has mixed feelings when his house burns down. On one hand, everything he and his family owned was in there, but on the other hand he can finally escape the tormenting children he goes to school with that constantly make fun of his dad's work. When he goes to live on his grandmother's mansion it is in the middle of the summer, meaning that he won't be able to make very many friends. Although he does meet this one boy, named Seth Hopper. Seth and Gabe create a game where they have to try and save innocent children robbed from their beds at night from a beast called 'The Hunter" The Hunter feeds on children's flesh and returns their bones to the family's doorstep the next morning. Their game is cut short when school starts and Gabe makes other friends who don't like Seth. And when things such as a trip wire activating an avalanche of boulders, or an M-80 in someone's bake sale cake, Gabe's new friends are certain that it is Seth trying to get back at Gabe, but Seth constantly claims it isn't and Gabe believes him. Something fishy is going on in this new town, and it is up to Gabe and Seth to figure it out.

After reading "The Stone Child" I really don't know why I picked up this book considering how creepy and twisted Dan Poblocki could be, but I'm glad I did. This book was very deserving of its horror placement and included many twists I never saw coming. This book should be on your reading list.
