The Woods Are Always Watching
by Stephanie Perkins
"Best friends Neena and Josie spent high school as outsiders, but at least they had each other. Now, with college and a two-thousand-mile separation looming on the horizon, they have one last chance to be together--a three-day hike deep into the woods of the Pisgah National Forest. Simmering tensions lead to a detour off the trail and straight into a waking nightmare ... then into something far worse. Something that will test them in horrifying ways."
