Just before Spring Break I finished up The Woods are Always Watching by Stephanie Perkins. Yikes! I didn’t fall in love with the two main characters so that, combined with the darkness and goriness of the story, left this one feeling flat for me.
Bears aren’t the only predators in these woods.
Best friends Neena and Josie spent high school as outsiders, but at least they had each other. Now, with college and a two-thousand-mile separation looming on the horizon, they have one last chance to be together—a three-day hike deep into the woods of the Pisgah National Forest.
Simmering tensions lead to a detour off the trail and straight into a waking nightmare … and then into something far worse. Something that will test them in horrifying ways.
I’d love a solid, suspenseful new thriller if you have any suggestions!
