Charity has a summer job that she loves - she plays the "final girl" at Camp Mirror Lake where guests pay to take part in being "hunted" by the serial killer feature in the movie for which the camp was named. When she and her team are confronted by a crazy lady with a shotgun, they are forced to shut the camp down early. Suddenly, Charity realizes that they aren't alone and discovers that there were actual murders at Camp Mirror Lake in the 70s. Knowing that they are being stalked, Charity and her friends do all they can to make it out alive.
This was a good little thriller full of campy slasher fun. It had all the elements of a good slasher film - a serial killer hunting those who work at the camp, spooky secrets from the camp's past that come to light, and the chance to be the "final girl." The only difference is the final girl won't be the typical blonde cheerleader because there isn't one to be found in this group of friends. I liked the twist at the end, it adds a little something extra to the story. I thought the narrator did an okay job. It took me about half the recording to get used to her tone of voice. This was a great addition to my October spooky reads.
