Camp So-and-So by McCoy, Mary

Twenty-five campers, five cabins.  Not all of them will come back alive...

CarolRhoda Lab and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 1st.

This is an odd story.  It has an unusual plot.  The students are picked after they have been looked over to see that they would be a good fit for the camp.  They think they are coming to learn about the theater and how to present themselves.  What they don't know is that as soon as they arrive, they become part of the act.  There are stage hands, a stage manager, and an opposing team on the other of the lake.  No one appears to really be running things.  The food supplies are scarce.  And when one of the counselors is found dead in a cabin, they know they've run into a nightmare.

Each cabin has their own problems.  The challenges are not easy to overcome and while some rise to the challenge, some give up.  They've become entertainment for an elite group and it's awful.

The more they find out, the less they know for sure.  It's a strange tale that makes you suspend your rational belief and makes you hope you never have to deal with these people.

One thing I know for sure.  These girls won't be going to camp again ever.
