Hey everyone! I just finished Stephen King and Richard Chizmar’s Gwendy’s Button Box! I decided to review it for you guys! My review can also be found on Goodreads.
Gwendy runs up the Suicide Stairs every day so that she can lose weight. One day, she meets a stranger who gives her a strange box with buttons on it. The man states that the box is for only Gwendy and that the box contains two things that she will find quite beneficial – chocolates and coins. Before Gwendy realizes what’s going on, she finds herself responsible for much more than a young adult could ever imagine.
Gwendy’s Button Box is a fantastic novella. Right from the start, I was intrigued. The story is fast paced and doesn’t have a dull moment. The best books give the reader something to think about and Gwendy’s Button Box definitely achieves this. It makes you question what you would do if you were in the main character’s shoes.
