Review: Nightmare on Sunset Lake by Melody Maher

Goodreads: Chelsea Wilson is a typical college student on summer vacation. She's going to spend the 4th of July camping in northern New Hampshire with herfriends, but she's a little nervous about going. She's excited to spend some time with her friends, but for some reason, she has a bad feeling about the trip. Her friends keep trying to convince her that they're going to have a great time swimming and fishing, but she can't seem to shake the persistent bad feeling in her gut. Bad omens suddenly start to appear, and Chelsea is the only one that takes any notice.

Kritters Thoughts: A great debut novel by an up and coming author! I am definitely beyond the target audience, but it was such a cute little read.

I read it one sitting, but the suspense definitely kept me reading. I couldn't believe that a YA book kept me glued until the last page - pleasantly surprised.

My few little criticisms of the book lie in the reviewing and editing. I thought that there were some points in the book that could have used some extra editing, whether it be spelling or sentence structure.

I was disappointed when it ended. I think the story could have used a little more of a conclusion. I guess I was so hooked on the story, I wasn't ready for it to end!

I would pass this book along to any of my young readers who love a little suspense.

Rating: perfect beach read (for the older audiences)

Total pages: 135
2010 Challenge: Win! Win! (I took this literally - I won the book from goodreads!)
