Additional Information

There's something going on at Experiment House. Whispers. Flashlights. Secrets. But nobody tells Tom anything. He's just the fat kid who files stuff, and he's got nothing to do but eat, and dream about eating. And then something escapes from Experiment House. Something hungry. Something starving. Something that understands Tom...This is a supernatural thriller that crackles with originality.
