My Copy: Ebook for Honest Review
It's a beautiful, sunny day. Callie Velasquez holds hands with her boyfriend Jeremy as they follow Callie's new BFFs Penelope and Lissa up the trail. The four friends are embarking on a camping trip -- a trip that immediately goes awry. They lose their way on the trail, and encounter a charismatic stranger with questionable motives. And when Callie stumbles upon a dead body, it becomes clear that the danger that lies in the woods is deadlier than she could have ever imagined. Tensions mount and friendships are tested as these teenagers try to survive the most sinister of circumstances.
The Next Page is our youngest reviewer, and dedicated to the reviews for middle school young adult stories. What Waits in the Woods was a very riveting story. A psycho, a knife, and a whole lot of woods is the basis of this story line. Callie was looking for an exciting trip with friends, but what she finds was beyond her wildest dreams. This is a story about finding what really makes people tick, and how much we really know those we call friends. This is a thrilling and suspenseful story that carried my attention from beginning to end.
