An eerie, twisty ghost story about twelve-year-old Parker, who only wanted a summer of fun and new friendship, and the nightmare she finds instead.

Don't forget your flashlight. . . .

Parker Nelson can’t wait for summer camp. She’ll have fun and make amazing memories, far away from the bullies who made seventh grade unbearable.

But then something terrible happens: The mean girl who made life a living nightmare is in Parker’s cabin. Soon all the other girls turn on Parker, too—no one wants to be her friend. Except Jenny.

Jenny’s the only one who is willing to listen. The only one who understands. The only one who feels the same way Parker does: That there's a deep, dark secret to making friends, and she’s the only one who doesn't know it.

But there’s something else Parker doesn’t know. Something bad happened at the camp a long time ago, and it just won’t stay buried. . . .
DELILAH S. DAWSON thought she would be a visual artist but somehow ended up a writer. She has worked as a muralist, an art teacher, a barista, a reptile caretaker, a project manager, and a dead body in a haunted house, which was probably the most fun. She is the New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Phasma, the Minecraft: Mob Squad series, Mine, and many other books for teens and adults, as well as the comics Ladycastle, Sparrowhawk, and Star Pig. She loves adventures, the beach, Disney World, vintage My Little Pony, and gluten-free cake. She went to one week of overnight camp in 1988, and it was so terrible that it inspired this book.
