Nightmare at Camp Forrestwood by Kelli Sue Landon was a surprisingly interesting read. As it is marketed in the young adult category I wasn’t expecting much of a “whodunit?” aspect to the book but I was pleasantly surprised. I also didn’t see the guilty party coming, though there was plenty of explanation after the fact as to why he or she did the terrible things that were done.

I found Nightmare at Camp Forrestwood to be an engrossing read. I started and finished it in the same day over a period of about eight hours. It wasn’t that the story was too easy, rather it was too good, I wanted to know what was really going on at Camp Forrestwood and who was behind it. Once I was invested in the tale I had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next and to whom and more importantly to see if I could figure out who was doing it ( I couldn’t ).

I thought the storyline was clever and creative and only slightly predictable, in that a bunch of kids go to camp and start turning up dead and there is no phone, no technology – which is explained – and no help available. I would have been a little more convinced of the reality of the storyline had it happened over a shorter period of time, but it went on for more than a full day so it was a little hard to believe a group of high school seniors couldn’t band together and get out to find help during that time.

Overall, I thought the author did a fair job of portraying the tension of the situation and the results that tension would have on a group of teenagers. I thought the mystery was believable except for the amount of time it encompassed before help was finally reached. I thought it did a good job of showing how suspicion of even innocent people can be raised in extreme circumstances and how stress can tear people down or bring them together to fight a common enemy.

I would recommend reading Nightmare at Camp Forrestwood. I found it interesting and enjoyable and except for the setting, hard to predict what was coming next. I think it would be appropriate for even upper middle-graders as well as young adults, though I would avoid going any younger because of the gore involved in the story.
