Camp Scare

We rated this book:


Friends. That’s all Parker wants. Paired with Cassandra, the most popular girl in school, on a class project, Parker thinks this is her chance to finally have a friend. Then Cassie’s popular friends take pictures of her journal to post online. In response to the cyberbullying, Parker is sent to Camp Care, but only the worst kind of coincidence would put her in the same cabin as Cassie. Rumors start that Parker is a thief, and when her cabin mates’ belongings are found in her drawer, she is shunned. Meeting Jenny at the bonfire proves to be the best thing, but Parker can’t find her throughout the day. When she finds out there is no Jenny enrolled, Parker is more determined to find out what is going on, especially as there are dark things in the camp’s past, things no one will talk about.

This book is full of drama, with a slow burn to an explosive ending. The kids don’t believe Parker, the adults don’t believe Parker, and the only one who does doesn’t exist. Sometimes dramatically frustrating, sometimes chilling, this scary story is perfect for those who love Mary Downing Hahn and Dan Poblocki.
