The Turtle Boy (Bram Stoker Award Winner, 2004) by Kealan Patrick Burke

Schools out and it’s summer that means ample time for kids to wonder where they should not. In this story some kids wander through mysterious territory near woods and a lake, they befriend an even more mysterious boy who has the strangest features. The story is of fathers, sons and buddies. This story has a theme of redemption. Kealan can really write a dark tale well, this is the first of his I have read he leaves you with a creepy and mysterious presence.

“The Turtle Boy had said: You don’t know who did it. When you do, remember what you saw and let it change you.”
