Scott What Waits in the WoodsIt’s a beautiful, sunny day; a perfect day to plan an overnight hike with friends. Callie Velasquez includes Jeremy in this otherwise all girl adventure with her new BFFs, Penelope and Lissa. The trip immediately takes a turn for frightening. There is suspense in every page. The friends lose their way on the trail and encounter an enigmatic stranger with dubious motives. And when Callie stumbles upon a body, it becomes clear that the danger that lies in the woods is more real than she could have ever imagined. Tensions escalate while friendships are tested. The denouement takes the reader to an unimaginable ending. May 2015 review by Penny McDermott.
