This story could have come straight from the headlines about many schools around the country and will lead kids and young adults to an understanding of peer pressure and the pain that comes from being different.
In Baker, Washington, three popular student athletes lie in comas following loss of muscle coordination, severe paranoia, and hallucinations. It's whispered that they're victims of Abel Frye, the cursed ghost who has haunted the school since he died there in the 1930s. Now the curse is spreading, and the students are running scared.
Veritas means truth and this series is uniquely positioned to help teenagers discover truth for themselves. As the author of This Present Darkness and as someone who struggled through his teenage years, no one is better suited than Frank Peretti to join with readers on this quest for truth.

I read this book a few years ago; and I definitely want to track down and read the sequel(/s?). This book was suspenseful, intelligent, funny, had likable characters- it was just a really good modern mystery. The only criticism I have if that if you get easily creeped out, especially by, I'll try and be vague to not spoil anything, vermin, this may not be the book for you. Other than that, really awesome. By the way, there is a movie.
Entertaining, for sure| Posted December 20, 2009
This book hacd many unexpected twists and turns and in the end when the villan is discovered, you WILL be shocked. I won't ruin the ending, but let's just say that it may make your skin crawl. I would recommend it, so go read it!

This book just kept me guessing. All the little twists and turns makes it kind of hard to put down. This is a must read for any teenager. Frank Peretti has done a great job with this one.

i remember likeing this book when i orginally read it. (we read it for a chuch book club that i was in at the time). lots of action and, well, i just liked the kids.
LOVED it! =D| Posted September 10, 2008
I just finished reading this today and I loved it! I saw the movie before reading the book, and while the movie was really good, the book was WAY better. I also thought it was cool how Frank brought the evolution vs. creation and relativism vs. absolutism debates up a little (using very good arguments, too).

Interesting Book| Posted April 10, 2008
The book was a lot better than the movie, I didn't like how a lot of details were excluded from the movie(though the movie was really good too). This was a very well written book about the dangers of occults or sects with in very good plot line and plot twists.

this was an awesome book and the movie kinda angered me becuz there was a lot of stuff that happened that they didn't put in the movie. and there were waaaaaayyyy more spiders in the book than they put in the movie.
