The Kids of Rock Hill

Something was wrong with the kids. We all knew it. But fear clogged our throats; we couldn’t say what we wanted. And even if we had it wouldn’t have mattered. By the time we realized what was taking place it was too late to stop it.

Jamie Wells down the street had been the first to notice. She rang me on the phone and jibber-jabbered about it for at least an hour before I told her to take a Xanax and calm down. She insisted I come over.

When I got to her house the front door hung wide open. I quietly stepped inside. “Hello?”

“I’m in here.”

Jamie sat in the kitchen burning through a pack of cigarettes like Marty Feldman on a bender.

“What’s wrong?”

"Tommy.”

“What happened?”

“The quarry.”

I drove us there in her car; she was in no condition to be behind the wheel.

“Look,” Jamie said, pointing over the edge of the steep drop-off.

I stumbled back, hands flying over my mouth. Seeing Tommy’s body at the bottom of that giant scar on the Earth was the worst thing I’d ever seen, but not for long.

Brad Coleson came running toward us. I figured he’d heard the news and came to see what happened. He ran clear off the edge and left a splatter of blood right next to Tommy.

I stared down that hole in disbelief.

The sound of a marching army came thundering from down the street.

Thousands of children were coming in our direction.

fellipxx: I loved this novel, it was very sweet and big on the emotions I really enjoyed it and could not stop reading not even for a second, I even cried a little bit at a few touching moments too. And overall I found this book sweet, realistic and cheesy (I like the cheesy stuff).

Bookworm: It was a great book I give everything 5 star. It has a great meaning and it will make you cry. It was sad and dark, I'm so glad I found this book!

MALAK: It's a nice story, but it should've been written in a better way... Seeing that there are some details are better left out such as those concerning the brands names. Then comes the place that the word 'etcetera' is put in, you can't be talking with someone in real life and telling him things then...

rattsos: Love the story and it’s so captivating that I had to impatiently finish the whole book to reach the happy ending.

artemisneith: Over the past years, I've read so many vampire genre books. I've lost the count on it. There are books that I love a lot but never have I ever categorised into my top fav thing. I was frustrated thinking when will her truth be revealed and KABOOM! The truth revealing part was my favourite chapter...

happypuput: Whoa.. Your story is so fantastic. Can't stop myself reading it until there's nothing left. I wish there would be a sequel to this or not? Nevertheless, your story gives me a mixed feeling. I love it, yet I'm so desperate.
