Camp So-and-So

Reviewed by:

Librarian and author Mary McCoy has created an imaginative tale using an unconventional structure, told in a series of acts like a play, with the actual bizarre story told in prose from multiple points of view, and a mysterious narrator adding cryptic commentary at random intervals. At an isolated camp in the Appalachians, an unassuming band of twenty-five teen campers from different economic backgrounds, races, social cliques, and sexual orientations are introduced and find themselves in a weird and dangerous situation. Divided into five cabins, the cunning and resourceful girls are put through differing horrors with the stories of super villains, Greek gods, fairy tales, magic, mystery, romance and mayhem told parallel to each other until the engrossing plot-lines intertwine at the end of this quirky adventure.¬†Elements from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” add to the entertainment for¬†young adults who enjoy a thrilling read.
