Thank you to author Lane Baker for providing me with a copy of Twisted Pines in order to write this honest review.

There are a few things that I really look for in a novel. I want it to tell me a story I haven't read before. I want to not be able to predict it. And I want it to not be

A science fiction tale where a college student tries to figure out why children are going missing at a summer camp.

Overall, Twisted Pines is a well-paced YA sci-fi novel. There’s an obvious improvement in dialogue here (in comparison to the previous story).
