A boy is kidnapped by a stranger claiming to be his sister, in this suspenseful tale of children in jeopardy.
Fourteen-year-old Nicholas Danzig's life seems idyllic until he is kidnapped on his way to school by a girl who tells him she is his sister. Anthem, as she calls herself, seems as crazy as the story she tells, yet Nick can't ignore the fact that many elements of her claim bear the undeniable sting of truth.
Anthem's plan is to reunite Nick with their real father and brother in California. She warns Nick that he and his brother have always shared a special synergy: cataclysmic powers are unleashed whenever the two are close. When it starts to snow on their way to sunny California, Anthem's bizarre story seems to be borne out. But when the pair arrives instead at the home of the Danzigs' longtime family friend the sinister "Uncle" Titus, Nick discovers that new terrors are in store for both him and the disturbed girl he has come to regard as his true kin.
Next of Kin, a harrowing novel of astonishing power, marks the debut of twenty-four-year-old Joseph Schreiber.
