Publisher's Summary

The instant New York Times best seller!

Hot on the heels of The Twin, the undisputed queen of YA thrillers is back with a scary and suspenseful listen about a summer camp filled with dark secrets.

Esme and Kayla once were campers at Camp Pine Lake. They're excited to be back this year as CITs (counselors in training). Esme loves the little girls in her cabin and thinks it's funny how scared they are of everything - spiders, the surly head counselor, the dark, boys...even swimming in the lake! It reminds her a little of how she and Kayla used to be, once. Before...it happened. 

Because Esme and Kayla did something bad when they were campers. Afterwards, the girls agreed to keep it secret. They've moved on - or so they say - and this summer is going to be great. Two months of sun, s'mores, and flirting with the cute boy counselors. But then they get a note. The Lake Never Forgets. And the secret they've kept buried for so many years is about to resurface.

Critic Reviews

“[T]he strong buildup…leads to a shockingly satisfying finale. An eerie thriller reminiscent of summer horror movies that will keep readers on edge.” (Kirkus)

Didn't expect that

I enjoyed the story even though it was meant for a younger crowd. At times I felt it dragged on but overall it was a good read to listen to.

The ending had me shaking my head. I didn't expect that. The author played that out well.

Love the story!

I gave this book five stars in all categories for a reason. However if you like your stories with endings all wrapped up with a bow this isn’t for you.

Lillie Ricciardi did a wonderful job narrating this story. She had wonderful range of emotion. She genuinely sounded frightened, confused, and happy during her performance.

The story, like all of Natasha Prestons stories, felt like it should have been simple but the more pieces that were added in the more complex it got. The characters had depth made me want to know more about them. The ending left me wanting to know more but it was satisfying as it wrapped up all the loose ends.

Overall, like all of Natasha Prestons stories, I loved it. It’s complex, left me wanting to know more, but I’m so happy with how the story was wrapped up.
