NOT MUCH HAPPENS IN THE SMALL TOWN OF GRIEVER’S Mill, where eleven-year-old Ben Cameron spends his time bird-watching and hanging out with his family. But everything goes wrong when a sinister darkness fills the sky and people begin to change—humans one minute, glass statues the next. There’s nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, and no one knows how to stop it.
Ben is certain that the glass plague’s victims can’t be gone forever and that a missing flock of sparrows holds the key to bringing one important statue back. But will the birds return before it’s too late? And will Ben have the courage to stand against his own brother in order to keep the glass from shattering?
Stranger Things meets The Stand in this haunting coming-of-age novel about a plague that brings the world to a halt.
