Joyland by Stephen King

I had been anticipating this book for quite some time and it was well worth the wait. The story centers around Devin, a 21 year old college kid, who spends his summer working at Joyland amusement park. There is word that there is a ghost that haunts one of the rides since she was murdered in it. Dev never sees her, but befriends a mom named Annie and her ten year old son Mike who has muscular dystrophy. Mike also has "the sight" and knows that there is a ghost in the rides. I found this mystery--who killed the girl?--a very different change of pace for Stephen King. As always, SK knocked it out of the park...I could almost smell the salt of the ocean air, the popcorn, and the cotton candy as I read this book.
