Camp Midnight by Steven T. Seagle

Skye's parents are divorced.  Summer is here and she's spending it with her father and her "step monster".  At least she thinks she is.  Then she finds out they plan to send her to camp...

Image Comics and Net Galley gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published April 12th.

I like to read graphic novels so I watch for those who entice me to read them.  Being a stepmom myself, how could I not read about Skye's "step monster"?  She's really not so bad but she's not so nice either.  She's more than happy to send Skye to camp so she doesn't have to put up with her pouting and complaining.  The problem is that Skye's dad can't remember which camp they were sending her to.  With most of the buses full, she just gets on one that has space.  It's the Camp Midnight bus.

When she arrives, she finds herself in a camp for monsters, real monsters.  Werewolves, snakes, witches, ghouls, you name it and it's there.  She's the only human.  They just think she's good at keeping secrets.  She has to be, who knows what they would do to her if they found she wasn't a monster.  The only good thing is that she has made a friend with another girl and is interested in one of the boys.  She'll need her friends by end of the story.

I liked the fact that this story has a message.  You need to be yourself, not be afraid to let people in and make friends, and that personal integrity can get you through a lot of situations.  I enjoyed this graphic novel a lot.  Why don't you give it a try?
