Read The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore Online Free - A group of young girls descend on Camp Forevermore, a sleepaway camp in the Pacific Northwest, where their days are filled with swimming lessons, friendship bracelets, and camp songs by the fire. Filled with excitement and nervous energy, they set off on an overnight kayaking trip to a nearby island. But before the night is over, they find themselves stranded, with no adults to help them survive or guide them home.
The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore traces these five girls—Nita, Kayla, Isabel, Dina, and Siobhan—through and beyond this fateful trip. We see them through successes and failures, loving relationships and heartbreaks; we see what it means to find, and define, oneself, and the ways in which the same experience is refracted through different people. In diamond-sharp prose, Kim Fu gives us a portrait of friendship and of the families we build for ourselves—and the pasts we can't escape.

This book didn’t work for me at all, mainly due to structural issues that took an interesting premise and turned it into an unnecessary (and ultimately unsatisfying) mystery for this reader. Keeping many of the details from the reader until the end, not providing near enough details, and weaving...

[I received a free digital copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for my honest review]
Okay, here is my main opinion on this book: It should have been a novella.
Basically this book is a collection of vignettes collected together to create a novel. And it just doesn't work....

I can’t resist a book with an ensemble cast, especially if the characters are thrown together into an unusual or high-stakes situation. I love trying to get into each character’s head and analyzing the group dynamics, the allying and backstabbing. And my favorite part, picking which character I r...

Hmm...this book was not at all what I expected from the synopsis, so I'm having a hard time being objective about it. The synopsis makes it sound like a traumatic childhood experience shared by 5 girls, and then following those girls through their lives and seeing how that incident shaped them. I...

Five girls on a camping trip suddenly find themselves stranded in the middle of a dense Pacific Northwest forest. This survival story alternates with stories from the girls' lives in the aftermath, as teenagers and adults. The idea being, I think, that they are just as much lost souls as grownups...

Phew. Well, I made it through. I am glad this was so short, otherwise I would have had to DNF it and I absolutely detest having to do that. I really struggled with this one. It was so all over the place for me, just not my style at all. It was nothing like what I expected and I'm not sure what ex...

The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore is structured so that we have The Incident at camp, alternated by snippets of the lives the girls have led since their time at Camp Forevermore.
You would think that this Incident would play a huge role in the future point of views of these girls. I was really ex...

A huge thanks to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for the free review copy!
After finishing this book it took me a while to decompress and gather my thoughts about this book. It tells the story of five girls who go to summer camp together and how their lives go on after their summer together. The girls a...
