Mile 81 by Stephen King

Mile 81 by Stephen King
This novella is only available to libraries in audiobook and it is one not to be missed.  Coming of age horror story is the best way to describe it.  What starts off sounding like Stand By Me turns into a really messed up Christine like tale. 
A young boy is deemed too young to play with his older brother and his friends.  Annoyed by being left behind he wants to have an adventure to brag about to the older kids.  He decides to visit the abandoned rest area on the Maine Turnpike at Exit 81.  Unfortunately he isn’t the only one who decided to visit the place that day…
If you are a bit squeamish, I wouldn’t recommend this one.  It’s pretty gory in spots.  And if you happen to drive a station wagon do NOT listen to this one.  Especially if you are driving it while listening. You may need to abandon your car on the side of the road.
