"Welcome to Maple Street, a picture-perfect slice of suburban Long Island, its residents bound by their children, their work, and their illusion of safety in a rapidly changing world. Arlo Wilde, a gruff has-been rock star who's got nothing to show for his fame but track marks, is always two steps behind the other dads. His wife, beautiful ex-pageant queen Gertie, feels socially ostracized and adrift. Spunky preteen Julie curses like a sailor and her kid brother Larry is called "Robot Boy" by the kids on the block. Their next-door neighbor and Maple Street's Queen Bee, Rhea Schroeder - a lonely community college professor repressing her own dark past - welcomes Gertie and family into the fold. Then, during one spritzer-fueled summer evening, the new best friends share too much, too soon. As tensions mount, a sinkhole opens in a nearby park, and Rhea's daughter Shelly falls inside. The search for Shelly brings a shocking accusation against the Wildes that spins out of control. Suddenly, it is one mom's word against the other's in a court of public opinion that can end only in blood."--Provided by publisher.

Sarah Langan is an exceptional writer. The only thing one can find fault with is that she doesn't write ENOUGH. The world deserves her words and her words are beautiful.
I loved this novel. It's twisty, deep, and memorable. Horror for people who don't know they like horror. Horror with a Lit degree.
I can't wait to see what she will write next.
