McCammon’s Boy’s Life, or Stephen King’s It – even Guillermo del Toro’s movie, The Devil’s Backbone – you may just want to spend time in a dangerous place called Neverland. This is Clegg’s most popular novel among readers.

What kinds of dangerous — and deadly — games do the children play there? Who is leading them into darkness?
