What could be more fun than five days in the woods? No curfews, no rules, and no parents. No one will even know Casey, Gena, and Maryann are up there with the 3 boys they like. And no one will hear them when they scream for help. When the first body shows up, it's shocking. When the knock comes on the back door, it's horrifying. And when they realize there's nowhere to hide, they'll wish they were already dead. Surviving a week in the woods is a going to be a whole lot harder than these girls could ever imagine.
