In Zephyr, Alabama, a bizarre murder is only the beginning Small town boys see weird sights, and Zephyr has provided Cory Jay Mackenson with his fair share of oddities. He knows the bootleggers who lurk in the dark places outside of town. On moonless nights, he's heard spirits congregate in the churchyard to reminisce about the good old days. He's seen rain that flooded Main Street and left it crawling with snakes. Cory knows magic, and relishes it as only a young boy can. One frosty winter morning, he and his father watch a car jump the curb and sail into the fathomless town lake. His father dives into the icy water to rescue the driver, and finds a naked corpse handcuffed to the wheel. This chilling sight is only the start of the strangest period of Cory's life, when the magic of his town will transform him into a man

This was a beautiful and amazing book, I thought I was going to give it a 4 and smiled to myself when I saw I had clicked 5 stars.
This book gave me a better understanding of rural America in the 1960s and I was surprised to see race was addressed in this book. I think President Trump should read this book, even though it was published in 1990, Cory’s dad says the KKK “are a bunch of scared people who want to turn time backward.” That phrase has a strong resonance with “Make America Great Again.”
I loved the writing style, the story was written by a poet with the soul of a child.

I truly hated to finish this book.
Definitely, a page turner.
From the days of innocence passed,
through the eyes of inquisitive young boys, a terrific read.
You'll thank me ;)

This is my absolute favorite book ever. I have read it nearly once a year. I laughed and I cried and it ended and I just wanted more.
