|""It" is your worst fear--literally. An ancient evil that returns periodically to feed upon the populace of a small town in Maine, the monstrous entity known as "It" can, and will, be everyone's worst nightmare come true. It attacked Derry years ago, but a group of kids defeated the monster--or so they'd believed. Now, they are adults, and "It" has come back. In fighting the monster, the adults recall what it was like to have fought it years before. The last time, they'd been lucky in one respect, at least. None of them had been killed. This time, one of them will die. A scary and suspenseful horror story that creates the world as it was in the late 1950's and early 1960's and as it was in the 1990's. "
Gary Pullman, Resident Scholar

30 years later it is killing children again and the friends decide to meet again to destroy it."
Katy, Resident Scholar
