The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore

Author: Kim Fu

Publisher: HMH
Release Date: February 18, 2018

A group of young girls descend 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. Filled with excitement and nervous energy, they set off on an overnight kayaking trip to a nearby island. But before the night is over, they find themselves stranded, with no adults to help them survive or guide them home.

The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore traces these five girls—Nita, Kayla, Isabel, Dina, and Siobhan—through and beyond this fateful trip. We see them through successes and failures, loving relationships and heartbreaks; we see what it means to find, and define, oneself, and the ways in which the same experience is refracted through different people. In diamond-sharp prose, Kim Fu gives us a portrait of friendship and of the families we build for ourselves—and the pasts we can't escape.

Why I'm Excited: I always wanted to go to summer camp. Blame my crazy reading habits, even as a kid, but I idealized this East Coast type of life full of private schools and summer camps. I love books that follow a group of girls/women, so this is right up my alley. I love this cover, too. I'm always drawn to a starry-skied cover. I'll definitely be keeping my eyes open for this one.

  1. Great pick! This book and author are both new to me, but it sounds like a great concept. Summer camp turns into an episode of survivor. I hope you enjoy it!

  2. This sounds like it'll be a really interesting read! The premise kind of reminds me a bit of Lord of the Flies, but without the creepy murder and cannibalism stuff XD haha. Awesome pick! Happy reading :)

  3. I'm actually not sure I ever wanted to go to camp when I was little, but I did love reading books about them! This story looks really interesting!


Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
