Custodian. Did you know that even a prolific writer like Stephen King gets writer’s block? After telling fellow author Richard Chizmar that he was having trouble finishing a story, King accepted Chizmar’s offer to show him the story. What followed was a back and forth email exchange with both writers contributing to a novella titled, Gwendy's Button Box. Set in Castle Rock, Maine, the novel presents protagonist Gwendy Peterson who becomes the custodian for a time of a magical button box that has the capability to deliver both good and evil. King and Chizmar tackle coming of age, power, trust and responsibility in this short novel. I read it quickly and enjoyed every page.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
