The Pallbearers Club, by Paul Tremblay

  • Title:  The Pallbearers Club
  • Author: Paul Tremblay
  • Borrowed from Queen Anne County Public Library (Audiobook)
  • Started: 4/9/2023
  • Finished: 4/12/2023
I really liked this one -- much more coming of age than horror.  One of the few "is it supernatural or all in their head" books where I am pretty certain of the answer (not supernatural).  Of course Tremblay may say otherwise, but that's my take.  

A somewhat bittersweet book, wish those two friends could have healed each other.  Good stuff.
