It by Stephen King:
My favourite book by my favourite author!
In an epic tale of Good vs Evil, a group of childhood friends are drawn back together to fight a malevolent entity in their home town. This is a perfect example of Stephen King's ability to develop a unique cast of characters. He captures the essence and wonder of childhood, and then seamlessly integrates the pressures of adulthood like no other author can.
