NOS4A2 by Joe Hill: Young Victoria "Vic" McQueen has a gift for finding misplaced or lost things. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she crosses a covered bridge in the middle of the woods and within moments is taken wherever she needs to go. In a similar fashion, Charles "Charlie" Talent Manx takes children for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with it's "NOS4A2" vanity plate, the thick smells of burning chestnuts and falling snow. His vehicle takes the children on a terrifying trip to his "playground" of amusements called "Christmasland." The children he takes never return to the real world again. One day when Vic goes searching for something lost, she, unfortunately, encounters Manx . . . and his unimaginable evil. Vic McQueen is now on Charlie's naughty list.
