The night my best friend Gracie disappeared, I had a nightmare.
A monster loomed from the shadows around the campfire. I ran. The thing stretched after me...
I woke gasping, afraid it might somehow be true. Gracie could always make me feel better - but she didn't respond to my email. Not that night; not ever.
That's what lead to my summer camp counselor job here near Gr

I recieved this First Reads Goodreads Giveaway book for an honest review.

I actually found it hard to find a place for this book. It's not completely a mystery book and it isn't paranormal (though there are spiritual hints). I'd like to say that it's a bit of coming of age with a huge chunk of mystery and a slight pinch of paranormal/spiritual elements. Keep that little genre recipe in mind when you read my review.

Kit is annoying, but I really like her. She isn't the whiny

(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).

(This review may contain spoilers).

Ideally, I'd give this book 3.5 stars. Although it was an entertaining read, I felt it got kind of bogged down with the details about the camping... and there wasn't a whole lot of mystery in this book.

The book did start out really well. I liked the fact that it went straight into the action and it was really easy to understand why Kit was scared and hiding, despi

I was very lucky to receive a free copy through a Goodreads program, in exchange for an honest review! This has earned a solid 3.75 for me!

This was my first time reading a book through this program, and I am so glad to have this book as my first experience. For the most part, it was a compelling read--enduring characters, thrilling moments, and a steady voice.

Kit, our main character, is driven to discover the whereabouts of her missing friend Gracie. She takes a job at a summer camp located ne

Kit is not really ready to be a counselor at a camp where she doesn't have to do her job but more to fill in for everything that is missing including the good will of most of her campers.
She doesn't really care so much so because she came here to uncover what happened to her friend Gracie, the butterfly girl.
In the middle of the forest and mountains filled with magic and legend, Kit has to keep safe a bunch of teenagers not that much younger than herself while facing her worse nightmare while
