Rocks Fall, Everyone DieseBook - 2016
Twin Peaks meets Stars Hollow in this paranormal suspense novel about a boy who can reach inside people and steal their innermost things-fears, memories, scars, even love-and his family's secret ritual that for centuries has kept the cliff above their small town from collapsing. Like most of his family, Aspen Quick steals private things from people, things that make them who they are, in order to make his life easier. He might steal someone's sobriety so he can drive home after a party-or he might steal his crush's desire for his best friend. He's never really worried how he could be affecting people. But that changes when he spends the summer in his grandmother's hometown and discovers just how deep the Quick family magic can go and what they are willing to do to keep it secret. With a smart, arrogant protagonist, a sinister family tradition, and an ending you won't see coming, this is part magic and part horror-a compelling, twisty, coming-of-age story about power, addiction, and deciding what kind of person you want to be, in a family that has the ability to control everything you are.
