Ten Second Synopsis:
Skye is sent to summer camp and is determined to have a bad time just to spite her father and stepmother – but she ends up on the wrong bus and bad times are about to catch up to her. Finding herself in a camp full of (literal) monsters means that Skye is going to have to be extra crafty to outwit, outplay and outlast her fellow campers if she doesn’t want them to discover a human hiding in plain sight.

This is a fun and fast-paced story about friendship, family and getting your fright on. Skye is a typical early teen with a surly stepmother who will do anything to get Skye out of the way on her annual stay at her father’s house. Although ending up on a camp full of monsters wasn’t part of the plan, Skye discovers that the term “monster” is subjective and those that look like monsters may be harbouring some very down-to-earth wisdom behind a frightening exterior. This is a pretty typical story arc, with Skye learning some lessons about herself by the end, but the narrative is presenting with plenty of humour and middle-grade graphic novel fans should really enjoy it. It is also a reasonably long read for a graphic novel, which is satisfying for those of us who always find this format too short.
