As a reader of storyteller Steve Burt's works, and a big fan of his book, "A Christmas Dozen", A Christmas Dozen: Christmas Stories to Warm the Heart I was excited and anxious to read the new paranormal thriller "FreeK Camp". The story of the "special" kids attending a summer camp in the woods of New England kept me engaged from beginning to end. The characters all seem just like real everyday people, until they grow to know each other, learning to work together using their unique talents to sol ...more

I didn't like this book when I first started and I almost set it down but I kept going and I'm glad I did. Its about two groups of kids with psychic powers. One group is kidnapped and the other have to work together to rescue them. Charlie was one of my favorite characters by far. His hands are deformed-lobster claws can't remember the technical term. His power is precognitive dreaming. There are also twins Juan with the power of clairvoyance and Juanita who has the power of clairaudience. There ...more

This was a good book but I think it has a much younger target audience. It reminds me of a Christopher Pike or R. L. Stein kind of book. I gave it 3 stars for me but as a teen I would have given it 5 stars. I liked all the kids and the camp staff but I wanted to know more and get more into their story and their gifts.

It's a great mystery/ thriller for teens. With their psychic powers they band together and never give up. The book is a bit humorous too. Steve Burt kept the pace up and never dropped the ball. I love his style of writing. Now I'll have to read the others in the series. 5 stars.

Shelves: fiction, horror
a good, simple, fast reading book probably aimed more at teenage readers, but a nice diversion for anyone.

This was another just plain fun read. I knew that it would have a pleasant ending but enjoyed the journey to get to that point.

This was suppose to be a summer like no other except when van #1 did not show up at camp. Now will all these kids who don't know anything about each other or their powers have to work together to free themselves of this mans will to kill them. The other group have to use their powers to save the other group. But will they make it in time.
