Louis Creed had a beautiful wife, Rachel, and two children, Ellie and Gage. When they moved to the old house in Maine, they thought it was perfect. Later, Louis meets his neighbor, Jud, and they become instant friends. Things start going terribly wrong when Rachel and the children go to visit her parents. Louis immediately tells Jud who offers to help. Although with Jud's help, Louis found something he never thought existed. When somebody is accidentally run over, again Jud helps. This time it is deeply regretted. Behind the house and through the woods lives something horrific, terrifying and deadly powerful. How does Jud help? What end up going wrong? To find out what lives behind the house and through the woods, read PET SEMATARY by Stephen King. (Sara C., 8th grade student, Rundlett Middle School, Concord, New Hampshire)
