Some mysteries are too dangerous to leave alone.

Nate's not happy about his family moving to a new house in a new town. After all, nobody asked him if he wanted to move in the first place. But when he discovers a tape recorder and note addressed to him under the floorboards of his bedroom, he's thrust into a dark mystery about a boy who went missing many, many years ago.

Now, as strange happenings and weird creatures begin to track Nate, he must partner with Tabitha, a local girl, to find out what they want with him. But time is running out, for a powerful force is gathering strength in the woods at the edge of town, and before long Nate and Tabitha will be forced to confront a terrifying foe and uncover the truth about the Lost Boy.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for The Lost Boy:

"Drily funny . . . [and] jaw-droppingly gorgeous." —Publishers Weekly

"A visually exciting, cinematic atmosphere." —School Library Journal

"Dark Horse author/illustrator Ruth creates a sinister, yet familiar urban fantasy of parallel worlds . . . A refreshing fantasy in which not all is spelled out, with tantalizing hints at a sequel." —Kirkus

"Kids are always clamoring for scary books, but far too few deliver the goods in a satisfyingly creepy way. Fortunately, that's not the case with this eerie, atmospheric graphic novel." —Horn Book
