The Night Country by Stewart O'Nan
The Night Country tells the story of five teenagers involved in a fatal crash at midnight on Halloween. Three of them die, one is unharmed, and one suffers severe injuries. A year later, the ghosts of the three dead teens gather to watch the survivors: Tim, who was left unscathed, yet haunted by that fact, Kyle, irreversibly brain-damaged, his mother trying to cope with a son she no longer recognizes, and Brooks, the police officer first on the scene of the accident. Stewart O'Nan's harrowing novel has received many positive reviews. The San Francisco Chronicle says of The Night Country, "This book, though set near Halloween, is one to be savored at any time you are up for an absorbing, riveting story."
