Gr 7 Up—If a friend went away to summer camp and came back a different person, it might be easy to assume it was because she had made new friends and had had new experiences. But what if there were more sinister reasons? The 25 campers who arrive at Camp So-and-So expect hiking, rowing, and other normal camp activities, but they soon become involved in increasingly weird and potentially dangerous circumstances, and there are no responsible adult figures to be found. The girls, divided into five cabins, must fend for themselves and navigate through a tangled thicket of clues and deadly traps. There is a psychotic murderer to be eluded, a heroic quest to be pursued, the intoxicating promise of true love, and dark forces at work that can split souls. The strong protagonists and supporting characters grow gradually more courageous as they confront every challenge, supernatural and otherwise. The cleverly built structure divides the narrative into acts, and scenes within the acts tell the tale of each cabin separately, until they all converge in one dramatic conclusion. VERDICT A wildly imaginative novel with plenty of twists, this is a good pick for teens who like stories filled with bravery and dark magic.—Emma Burkhart, formerly at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy, Philadelphia
