This book had me sitting at the edge of my seat the whole time. Todd Hewitt is the last boy of Prentisstown. In less than a month he will become a man. But Prentisstown is full of secrets and a bloody history. Can Todd do what he needs to in order to save New World. Can he protect those who mean the most to him from the dangers that await? Or will Todd "fall" like Prentisstown wants him to? Part 1 of the Chaos Walking Trilogy.
