9780007108398: The Door in the Lake

Was Joey abducted by aliens, or is the truth even more mysterious?

Joseph disappears from a camping trip and mysteriously reappears two years later. He doesn't remember what happened to him, but even more disturbing is that he doesn't look a day older than when he left. Chronologically 14, he looks, sounds and feels like a 12-year-old boy.

While trying to cope with his friends and family's acceptance of his return, Joey also begins to suffer strange physical conditions, including a voice telling him to "come to the door-r-r in the la-a-ke" and periodic seizures during which he seems to remember being sucked into a vortex of light near the forest where he disappeared.

As his physical contition deteriorates, there seems to be no choice but to return to the lakeside camp where he disappeared and confront what happened to him…

Review:

“Butts grounds the paranormal action in everyday life, and wraps up the story in a water-tight climax. An agreeable diversion for UFO enthusiasts.”
Publishers Weekly

“The suspense builds to a surprise climax that leaves you wondering: If time can stop can it also go backward?”
Booklist

From the Back Cover:

Joey, he remembered. His name was Joey. Waking up felt like swimming to the surface of an underground river, the air above as black and airless as the water below. He had been drifting in the darkness for a long time before he realised who he was…

When Joey wakes up, he knows that something is wrong. He's lying on a soft, warm mattress in a hospital bed – yet he knows that the night before he went to sleep in his tent by the lake. But Joey doesn't realise that the night before was actually two years ago – when he vanished from the campsite without a trace…

Joey appears to be completely unchanged. As he struggles to recover lost memories, trying to fit back in to a world that has moved on without him, Joey realises that he needs help. But who can he possibly turn to?

Then the voices start calling…
