~ THE CAMP ~
The new YA novel by Karice Bolton
Author of the Witch Avenue Series
Emma has always tried to be perfect in her almost eighteen years of existence, but it has never been good enough. As she finds herself counting the days until she’s officially free from her parents’ reins, her stepfather hands her a plane ticket explaining that she must attend the Re-Boot Camp in the wilds of Alaska.
Once she lands in the middle of nowhere, she realizes the camp is nothing like she imagined, and she wants out immediately. That is until she meets Liam.
The camp is full of teens with dark pasts, but she finds herself drawn to Liam’s ability to see who she really is and who she wants to become. While Emma and Liam begin adjusting to a place neither wants to be, frightening events begin to unfold. When people begin disappearing, it becomes apparent they can only trust one another as they fight for survival.

~ MY REVIEW ~
Okay kiddos! I have to start by saying that Karice is a very solid writer, and I just adored Lonely Souls (Witch Avenue Series #1). If you haven't gotten a taste of her writing yet, you definitely should pick up the first in either of her two series. Better yet, start with The Camp!
This was a fast paced, down right creepy read. It has a bit of a different feel than her other novels and is the first one she has written as a stand alone.
This is definitely a book for fans of contemporary romance and will easily appeal to a teen audience.
Our lead character, Emma, is a headstrong girl just about to turn eighteen. Her--in my opinion, horrible--step-father forces her into "Re-boot Camp," a place that is sure to be quite an experience. As the story progresses, we are introduced to Liam. He becomes Emma's savior and love interest. Their relationship develops quickly, much more quickly than I would usually like. But, then again, when a totally delicious guy protects you from a bunch of felons...who wouldn't suffer from some insta-love.
Soon a series of scary things begin to take place at camp. People are disappearing and everyone is at a loss for an understanding. Man! The suspense in this book is great, which keeps the story moving at a fast pace. Liam and Emma become an inseparable team as the face what is happening around them.
The Camp is an enjoyable although, some what dark read. It will keep you reading and I recommend it for fans of contemporary YA.
