SOMETIMES GROWING UP 
 
MEANS FACING YOUR DEMONS
 
The son of a struggling single mother, Jamie Conklin just wants an ordinary childhood. But Jamie is no ordinary child. Born with an unnatural ability his mom urges him to keep secret, Jamie can see what no one else can see and learn what no one else can learn. But the cost of using this ability is higher than Jamie can imagine – as he discovers when an NYPD detective draws him into the pursuit of a killer who has threatened to strike from beyond the grave. 
 
LATER is Stephen King at his finest, a terrifying and touching story of innocence lost and the trials that test our sense of right and wrong. With echoes of King’s classic novel It, LATER is a powerful, haunting, unforgettable exploration of what it takes to stand up to evil in all the faces it wears.

    I really enjoyed this but it was such a quick read I found myself wishing it were longer LoL. I also enjoyed that it was a bit different than the usual S. King books.
  • He never disappoints.

    I loved everything about this book. It had the classic feel of It, The Shining and other iconic Stephen King novels. This grabbed you, and steadily reeled you in right up to the amazing end, and even there was a surprise or two. I loved this one and whether you're a Stephen King fan, or are just discovering him for the first time, you owe it to yourself to dive into this one. Don't until, Later. Seeya, Champ!!
  • Did not disappoint

    I had no idea what this book would be about- just bought it because I felt like reading, and because I’ve been reading King since the 80’s. Loved it
