The Chalk Man

C.J. Tudor

In 1986, Eddie and his friends spend their days biking around their sleepy English village, looking for any excitement they can find. The chalk men are their secret code: little chalk stick figures they leave for one another as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them to a dead body, and nothing is ever the same. In 2016, Eddie and his friends all receive chalk stick figures in the mail...and then one of them turns up dead. That's when Eddie realizes that saving himself means finally figuring out what really happened all those years ago. A spine-tingling debut.
