Summary
Modern-day America. Fifteen Boy Scouts and their seven adult leaders are found to have committed suicide in the forest of a scout reservation. One of the dead boys is a friend of Sparky Wallace, whose father Jack runs a Polish restaurant in Chicago. Drawn into investigating the suicides, Jack discovers a connection with his own grandfather, who killed himself in the Kampinos Forest in Poland when he was fighting the Nazis in World War II. Together, Jack and Sparky travel to Poland to unlock the terrifying mystery of what really makes people panic in the forest. But before they can do so, they have to experience panic for themselves, and reach the very brink of madness
Summary
Two wooded preserves on different continents harbor mysterious entities that drive people who enter the woods to suicide. When a whole Boy Scout troop camping in contemporary Michigan does just that, Sparky Wallace, an Asperger’s-afflicted teen whose best friend was on that trip, isn't surprised. Sparky's widowed father, Jack, is reluctant to get involved in investigating the deaths -- until he learns of a possible connection between the Michigan suicides and his grandfather's unexplained disappearance in a Polish forest during World War II. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
