It’s supposed to be a fun summer… then a girl goes missing.
When a girl goes missing, and none of the adults can give a straight answer, a childhood game suddenly turns into a real, secret mission.
Phone lines are down. Strange men roam the campgrounds. Financial documents indicate something’s amiss. And hidden security cameras point to a mysterious cottage in the woods.
With heightened suspicions, junior camp counselors Marcus and Alissa recruit their friends to help find the missing girl. In their search, the teens will learn to rely on each other, especially when they encounter a terrible and dangerous secret.
A fantastic young adult mystery story revolving around a missing girl and the campers that find it in themselves to take matters into their own hands in trying to find her. Timothy R. Baldwin does a wonderful job in intertwining the aspects of mystery and suspense with coming of age trends and experiences. The story was able to hold my interest, especially with the creepy backdrop of taking place in campgrounds - have I mentioned I’m a horror movie buff? That’s what this reminded me of and I appreciated it very much.
While I would classify this story as more of adventure/mystery, and not horror, it was still a great setting for a great story. Readers and listeners of all ages will definitely find themselves enjoying Camp Lenape!
