SYNOPSIS: High school can be a difficult time in a young person’s life, especially toward the end where one has to start making the sudden transition into adulthood. For Jimmy Hawthorn it is even worse. Not only does he need to successfully make that transition, he has to do it while hiding the fact that he is the one responsible for the disappearances of two fellow high school girls, both of whom are prisoners in a secret underground fallout shelter he discovered behind an abandoned house on the outskirts of town.
MY RATING: 4 STARS
Wow, this was a really dark and terrifying story. Jimmy takes a bondage fetish way too far when he decides to abduct a two fellow classmates and act out his sick fantasies. I felt so bad for these two girls. Samantha was taken first and brutalized by Jimmy to the point where she is broken. Days later, he abducts Megan because she was getting too close to finding Samantha. Megan is determined not to let Jimmy break her as he did Samantha. She's a fighter and isn't going to submit so easily.
Although the story is very dark and the subject matter is disturbing, it was still a fascinating read. Overall, I would recommend Jimmy if you like Jack Ketchum type stories.
