Edward Pollock lives an ordinary life at his ordinary boarding school, where the food is bad and the teachers are way too serious. But one day hes inexplicably drawn to a strange and powerful book, and suddenly the boarding school isnt quite so ordinary anymore. Capable of elevating men to heroism or destroying them through malice and evil, The Other Book has laid dormant for four hundred years, waiting for someone to restore it to its original glory. While Edward must do his best to keep The Other Book safe, a mysterious new teacher at the school becomes intent on getting ahold of the text for her own sinister purposes. With a gift for dark, terrifying storytelling reminiscent of Stephen King, Womack is a powerful new talent in the teen market.
