One moment the doorway had been dark and empty. The next, someone was there, looking at David and Harley. A girl older than they were - 16 or 17, perhaps - hugging around her a disintegrating leather jacket that fell almost to her knees. The boys stared at her, and she stared at them. Then she disappeared....

I'm not entirely sure what to think of this one.Theme, and some of the action, is more suitable for an early-teen audience, while the font and layout seem to aim it towards a younger age group.Two boys jump into a car, which drives itself into a forest. There, they become victims of a scientist, driven mad after his daughter's death. They are - at times - accompanied by a girl. The scientist has been gathering up the users of society - homeless people, criminals - and is harvesting their organs for rich patients. The girl is a ghost - when revealed, her injuries are dramatically and gruesomely described.
Not really sure what to make of this one. It's about two kids who steal a car and get whisked away to a factory in the woods where organs are harvested from "criminals" (anyone willing to steal a car it appears) and donated to rich folks. Kinda creepy and somewhat dark with some downright gruesome moments. It's largely dialogue with a dash of black humour. One of the boys is a rebel and the other is a geekier lad with a love of making up words. I think it might appeal to young boys, but it didn't do much for me.
Mahy loves to mix the weird with the mundane, and she does it really well. This book has some mad-scientist type of people in it, and a girl who seems to be able to appear and disappear at will. And then we have two boys - one who sounds like a nerd, but whose language experiments prove useful; and the other, who's a bit of a rebel, but who also has an appreciation for classical music.A fun read for an 8 to 10 year-old.
Pretty out there in the ideas factory!
