First Boy by Gary Schmidt.
Henry Holt and Company: NY, 2005.

Cooper is raised by his grandparents on their dairy farm. After they die of natural causes strange things start happening. There are black sedans driving slowly around their tiny town, and that's just the beginning. His way of life is at risk.

After reading Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy, I immediately searched for other books by Gary Schmidt. I wasn't excited by the description of First Boy, but I was not disappointed by the book. Schmidt's descriptions of his characters-their feelings and their daily lives-are insightful. The book is as much about who Cooper is as it is about the storyline.
