The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore
In The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore, a group of young girls descends on Camp Forevermore, a sleepaway camp in the Pacific Northwest, where their days are filled with swimming lessons, friendship bracelets and camp songs by the fire. But when they set off on an overnight kayaking trip, they find themselves stranded with no adults to help them survive or guide them home. The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore explores the way in which this traumatic experience impacts and shapes the lives of the girls throughout their teen and adult years.
