SOUR CANDY by Kealan Patrick Burke

Sour Patch Kids are some of my favorite candies and my go-to movie theatre snack. But now, for at least the next year, everytime I pop one in my mouth, I'll think about this book. Damn you Kealan Patrick Burke for nearly ruining Sour Patches for me! If the plot itself wasn't unsettling enough (and it's best to go into the book not knowing much), Burke's disturbing prose haunted me from the start. It's a work of great psychological horror, touching on the inherent fears and stresses of parenthood, Wal-Mart, and the potential of total insanity, and turning them into a fucked up novella that's instantly disturbing and memorable.

Don't take candy from strangers guys...
