Bedbugs – Ben H. Winters (2011, Quirk Books, Philadelphia)
Author Ben H. Winters rips gleefully through this largely formulaic, insect-infested tale, which registers high on the Squirm-o-Meter. When Susan Wendt and her family move into what seems to be an ideal apartment in New York, they get more than they bargained for. Well, Susan does, anyway – no one else can see the bedbugs that plague her, and as she begins to completely unhinge from the stress and the fear, she realizes that the creepy-crawlies are not the only evil presence in her new home.
Guaranteed to make you itch.
