We’ve talked about fantasy books and dystopian books. The next book we can’t wait to read is a thriller!
We love a good mystery and this one sounds fantastic. Going into the woods can be scary, especially sleeping over. Strange sounds, pure darkness. Your imagination runs wild. We should know because our family lives in Alaska and we have some stories to tell while camping in the woods. We’ll save that for another time. This book brings those creepy feelings back. I totally want to see what happens to Callie and the others. In a book world full of fantasy and dystopian it’s refreshing to see something unique. I love fantasy and dystopian, don’t get me wrong. But when I heard about his book I was hooked.
It was promptly added to our TBR list. Take a look and get hooked too!

For city girl Callie Velasquez, nothing sounds more terrifying than a night out in the wilderness. But, wanting to bond with her popular new friends, Lissa and Penelope, she agrees to join them on a camping trip. At least Callie’s sweet new boyfriend, Jeremy, will be coming too.
But nothing goes as planned. The group loses half their food supply. Then they lose their way. And with strange sounds all around her–the snap of a twig, a sinister laugh–Callie wonders if she’s losing her mind.
Tensions swirl among the group, with dark secrets suddenly revealed. And then, things take a fatal turn: Callie stumbles upon a cold dead body in the woods.
Is the murderer close by, watching them? Callie has to figure out where she can turn and who she can trust, before her own life is at stake.
Kieran Scott weaves a thrilling mystery that explores love, loyalty–and the dangerous decisions we make in order to survive.
