Shadow, Shadow (Book One of the Shadow Pines Trilogy) by V.B. Marlowe
Strange things happen in Shadow Pines. It is not a normal town. For one thing, no one ever leaves - unless they mysteriously disappear. Harley's mom disappeared years ago and now Harley is stuck with an evil stepmother and an adorable baby brother. She is a rebel, always getting into trouble in school. For her sixteenth birthday, she receives an invitation to a new novelty shop in the mall for a free gift. Three other teens who share her sixteenth birthday have also been invited. Two of them show up with her and the mysterious shop owner gives them boxes and tells them that they must use to feed the shadows - or the shadows will feed on them or their family members. The story is mysterious and creepy and kind of Twilight Zoney. It is the first in a trilogy and I look forward to reading the other two books. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
