Official in depth review can be found @ Shivers of Horror.

If I had found this book as a teenager I would have salivated over it, as most of the horror books I read as a teen didn’t really have gore in them. Heck some of them avoided death altogether. While it’s definitely a young adult book, it’s also exactly like a slasher movie should be. I got to know and like the characters with some comedy and spookiness mixed in at a great location. This could easily be turned into an adult novel or movie by adding some swearing, partying, possibly some sex and more gore. I would highly recommend this if you are a fan of authors like Christopher Pike, Richie Tankersley Cusick and so on. Or you are a fan of YA books & slasher movies. I didn’t know what I was getting into with this one, but I’m glad I read it. It was a fairly quick read and I had fun with it.
