Ask the Dark
fullDescription

A finalist for the Edgar Award for Best Young Mystery. "Gritty, atmospheric . . . deals with intense issues around family, violence, and class." (School Library Journal).
Billy Zeets has a story to tell. About being a vandal and petty thief. About missing boys and an elusive killer. And about what happens if a boy who breaks all the rules is the only person who can piece together the truth. Gripping and powerful, this masterful debut novel comes to vivid life through the unique voice of a hero as unlikely as he is unforgettable.
"Ask the Dark will keep you up all night, and its flawed, real hero will haunt your day. I wish I'd written it."—Michael Grant, New York Times-bestselling author of the Gone series
"Absolutely remarkable. Readers will line up for this one."—Michael Cart, past president of YALSA and ALAN
"Flawed but observant and courageous, Billy and his taut storytelling will engage readers of all stripes."—Kirkus Reviews
"Turner does a superlative job of developing the distinct and sonorous voice of a troubled teen. Teen fans of suspense, atypical protagonists, and thrillers will be engaged by this unique novel."—VOYA
"A compelling, offbeat tale."—Publishers Weekly
"Harrowing."—Bulletin
