Paraffin, Vermont, is home to the Grosholtz Candle Factory. There, seventeen-year-old Poppy finds something dark and unsettling: a room filled with dozens of startlingly lifelike wax sculptures. Later, she's shocked when one of the figures-a teenage boy who doesn't seem to know what he is-jumps naked and screaming out of the trunk of her car. Poppy wants to return him to the factory, but before she can, a fire destroys the mysterious workshop. With the help of the wax boy, who answers to the name Dud, Poppy tries to find out who was behind the fire. Along the way, she discovers that some of the townspeople are starting to look a little . . . waxy. Can they extinguish the evil plot?

I love the campy snarky tone and the creepy backstory, and have such fond memories of melting color changing candles in straw covered bottom Chianti bottles. Okay, so I'm old.

A book full of dry humor with an unique plot. Girl struggles with image and confidence after an embarrassing event. She eventually discovers a massive secret that threatens to take over the town. Action packed with a solid "how you gonna fix it" theme. An extra star for the theme I have never heard of or read of in fiction: wax.
