Hardcover (May 2013)
Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a
misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to
unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike,
she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within
moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether itâ€™s
across Massachusetts or across the country.
Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to
take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the
NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right
out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that
transport them to an astonishing â€“ and terrifying â€“
playground of amusements he calls â€śChristmasland.â€ť
Then, one day, Vic goes looking for troubleâ€”and finds Manx.
That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever
escape Manxâ€™s unmitigated evil, is all grown up and
desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped
thinking about Victoria McQueen. Heâ€™s on the road again and
heâ€™s picked up a new passenger: Vicâ€™s own son.
