Blurb; A group of young girls descend on Camp Forevermore, a sleepaway camp in the Pacific Northwest, where their days are filled with swimming lessons, friendship bracelets, and camp songs by the fire. Filled with excitement and nervous energy, they set off on an overnight kayaking trip to a nearby island. But before the night is over, they find themselves stranded, with no adults to help them survive or guide them home.
The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore traces these five girls—Nita, Kayla, Isabel, Dina, and Siobhan—through and beyond this fateful trip. We see them through successes and failures, loving relationships and heartbreaks; we see what it means to find, and define, oneself, and the ways in which the same experience is refracted through different people. In diamond-sharp prose, Kim Fu gives us a portrait of friendship and of the families we build for ourselves—and the pasts we can’t escape.
My Review; I love the cover of this one. The centre point of this story is that all five girls attended camp forevermore. The story then flicks back to an event which happened at camp forevermore throughout, but the rest of the story is the individual stories of the five girls lives since the camp…
Each section is clearly set out so there should be no confusion for the reader. You really get to know these five girls in depth through each section of their own story but also as a team together at camp forevermore. The poor girls went through a lot at camp forevermore together. It is a good story which I easily devoured and enjoyed but have to say the ending felt too sudden for me, like it just stopped. End. Done. But other than than a well written story.
I was beside the girls the whole time at camp forevermore, it musn’t have been easy for them all. I awarded four stars and would recommend this story to you all. A bit of adventure, drama, mystery and suspense all in one.
