It Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of It

When Will Denborough and his old school buddies receive a phone call each, they are flung back into a world of terror they had long numbed their minds to. On returning to their home town, Derry, they find the old evil has returned again - they hadn't killed it after all! The story flips between the adolescents they were and their battle, and the cynical adults they have become trying to defeat a foe.
