I know that you’re thinking you’re just a little too old for that whole Tooth Fairy/Santa Claus bit, but let me assure you, this is a very gritty book and this fairy is no little pink-frocked, gossamer-winged cutie. Sam is in grade-school the first time he spots the Tooth Fairy. By waking up and surprising her on her way out of his room, Sam somehow forms a connection between himself and this hellish sprite that is sometimes male, sometimes female and always, always causing trouble. She’s there the day that a big bully threatens Sam and his friends and Sam goes for the bully’s throat. Did Sam really kill the kid who wouldn’t leave him and his mates alone, or is he just the victim of the Tooth Fairy’s hallucinogenic illusions? And if he’s not a murderer, then why do the police find a body in the woods behind Sam’s house? The Tooth Fairy is loose, and no one is safe. After reading this shivery page turner, you’ll think twice about what might be under your pillow!
