Family Choice Gold Award Winner NABE Gold Achievement Award Readers' Favorite Bronze Annica should not have texted and tried to re-tweet, For now she was falling towards One Creepy Street!

In cities across North America, teenage runaways are struggling to stay alive. Some don't make it to adulthood. Some do, but their lives rarely rise above the despair that brought them to the streets in the first place. A few manage to beat the street, to get their lives back on track. In this disturbing account Marlene Webber draws on extensive interviews with these kids to explore the realities of street life, its attraction, and its consequences. Street kids like to project an image of themselves as free-wheeling rebels who relish life on the wild side. All brashness and bombast, they strut around inner cities panhandling, posturing, and prostituting themselves. Labelled society's bad boys and girls, they often live up to their image. But as sixteen-year-old Eugene tells us, the street forces bravado on homeless adolescents, 'but underneath, a lot of kids are plenty scared.' Eugene is only one of many street kids who talked to Webber in major cities across Canada. She lets her subjects tell their own stories; their voices are sometimes brave, sometimes bitter, often heartbreaking. Webber cuts a comprehensible path through the tangle of forces, including family breakdown and social-service failure, that accelerate the tragedy of Canada's runaways. She suggests measures that might help more of them beat the streets.
In a frozen Arctic wasteland, an ancient legend lies dormant under three thousand years of snow and ice, while half a world away a Christmas Eve Nor’easter pummels Eerie Cove, Massachusetts. Joshua ‘Doc’ Lavine is an accomplished Boston neurosurgeon but he faces a career-ending lawsuit and the threat of criminal charges. No one feels sorry for him because his surgical skills are second only to his misanthropy, and while news of Aunt Sadie’s death should be a welcome diversion, it revives memories of ancient rituals and court documents that were sealed when Doc was thirteen. A fresh body has been found inside the house Sadie bequeathed to Doc, and when FBI Agent Quinn Masterson arrives in Eerie Cove asking questions, Doc realizes that his time is running out. Once determined never to return to that house, Doc now knows he has no choice. Trapped inside the house on Christmas Eve, the truth will be revealed: a clandestine organization linked to Nazi Germany; an ancient legend frozen in time; pagan graveyard rituals performed in the still of night; and the truth about Doc’s horrifying past.
