Camp So-And-So

By Mary McCoy

A wildly original, genre-busting novel about teen girls at a sinister summer camp takes well-known camp mixes magical realism with offbeat humor and a refreshing senses of adventure.

A mysterious summer camp hosts twenty-five teen girls, divided into five cabins. Each cabin is drawn into a version of a classic camp story: a camp rivalry story, a camp love story, a murder-in-the-woods story, a survival story, and a coming-of-age quest. The girls find themselves acting out someone else's predetermined story--but who is pulling the strings? Unless the girls can discover who's manipulating them and find a way to change how those stories end, some of them might not make it out of summer camp alive. The cabins' story lines weave in and out of one another, taking unexpected turns and pretzeling beloved tropes into a unique adventure.

  • Carry On by Rainbow Rowell meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer in this hilarious send-up of familiar camp narratives.
  • Both brilliant and accessible, with tons of sharp humour, poking fun at familiar tropes of camp urban legends and appealing for mystery lovers and adventure fans.
  • Unabashedly embraces 25 distinct female characters and makes each of them instantly unforgettable and uses magical realism which hot trend in YA fiction now, as kicked off by The Bone Gap.
