In Loss, Billy Ballard, a bullied kid with a crazy grandfather and overworked mom, finds that an agreement he made as a five-year-old will change his life forever. He had agreed to wield the weapon of Pestilence, also known as the White Rider of the apocalypse. Now, he has to get rid of it. Unfortunately, Pestilence is hiding inside his own memories.
I thought that the book was well written, with a good sense of humor. The personal struggles Billy faced were ones I could relate to (apart from being the new Pestilence). He was bullied, and couldn’t get up enough courage to face the things ahead. Those things happen to everyone. Some things became repetitive, but it was a good read on the whole.
