A horror story about friendship, growing up, and finding a place in the world: Gremlins meets The Breakfast Club by way of Stephen King and Stranger Things.

In the summer of 1982, five friends discover an ancient stone box hidden deep in the woods. They seal inside of it treasured objects from their childhoods, and they make a vow:

Never come to the box alone.

Never open it after dark.

Never take back your sacrifice.

Four years later, a series of strange and terrifying events begin to unfold: mirrors inexplicably shattering, inanimate beings coming to life, otherworldly crows thirsting for blood. Someone broke the rules of the box, and now everyone has to pay.

But how much are they willing to sacrifice?

PERFECT FOR FANS OF STRANGER THINGS: With its 1980s setting and creepy, inexplicable sense of lurking evil, this book offers a similar mood to the much-beloved TV show.

JUST IN TIME FOR THE FALL: Enter the fall with a bit of thrill and suspense with this “hair-raising” read—perfect for YA/Fall Halloween promotions.

Praise for The Sacrifice Box:

* “Atmospheric…with brilliantly executed elements of horror and comic relief.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Moody and atmospheric, with sardonic humor; a meaty slice of horror.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Stewart’s lyrical writing is at its best when describing visceral, gruesome horror…Cinematic pacing will keep the pagesturning for fans of the genre”—Booklist

“This is an intense, descriptive, and intellectual thriller that will appeal to older teenagers who enjoy horror and suspense novels.”—SLJ
