An un-putdownable thriller with twists and turns the reader won't see coming, from YA talent Kieran Scott.

It's a beautiful, sunny day. Callie Velasquez holds hands with her boyfriend Jeremy as they follow Callie's new BFFs Penelope and Lissa up the trail. The four friends are embarking on a camping trip - a trip that immediately goes awry.

They lose their way on the trail, and encounter a charismatic stranger with questionable motives. And when Callie stumbles upon a dead body, it becomes clear that the danger that lies in the woods is deadlier than she could have ever imagined.

Tensions mount and friendships are tested as these teenagers try to survive the most sinister of circumstances.

KIERAN SCOTT is the author of several acclaimed young adult novels, including the Cheerleader Trilogy, the He's So / She's So Trilogy, and Geek Magnet. She lives with her family in New Jersey. Visit her online at www.kieranscott.net.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for What Waits in the Woods: "This is pure page-turning, up-all-night genre fiction... Readers...will enjoy being vicariously creeped out." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Scott knows how to keep readers turning pages. This novel is a masterfully written thriller." -- School Library Connection "Cinematically paced, it's tough to put it down. Readers will be kept up late, shocked to discover the depth of the darkness that lies in the woods." -- Kirkus Reviews "Scott builds constant tension, and the novel's events unfold like a horror movie." -- School Library Journal "[Cinematic and suspenseful... readers will be on edge throughout this page-turner." -- The Horn Book Guide "With the taut pacing of a horror movie, plenty of gruesome twists, an angsty romantic triangle, and a deeply creepy ending, this one is sure to satisfy teens." -- Booklist
