Format: Digital

Genre: Horror

The Senior Year Scavenger Hunt is always a big deal for incoming seniors at Pritchett High. This year a group of eight friends are chosen to take part in the hunt at the local carnival grounds. The girls are out to have a good time and start their senior year, but someone else has other ideas for their night at the carnival grounds. The lights and rides turn on and off and screams echo in the darkness. One by one, the girls are murdered by someone in a grotesque Halloween mask - the question is who will be the final girl…if there is one?

This was a fun way to finish out my spooky reads for October. I love reading a decent slasher story. The setup was decent and the story was well-told until the murderer explained the reason for their rampage. I was surprised by the killer's identity but found the motive ridiculous. Also, the name the girls gave the murderer made me roll my eyes. I understand the meaning of it but the name itself is childish. This would be a good choice if you are looking for a short slasher book to end your Halloween reading.
