The Woods Are Always Watching

We rated this book:


When Neela and Josie set out on a camping trip before they are separated for college, they never expected it to be the defining moment that could tear them apart. A three-day camping trip in the Pisgah National Forest seemed like the perfect bonding trip. Armed with detailed maps, water filters, shovels, bear canisters, tents, and hiking gear, they were perfectly prepared for anything that would arise. What they weren’t prepared for was another type of predator in the woods. Now, Neela and Josie must face the ties of their friendship that are quickly unraveling in order to fight for their survival.

The Woods Are Always Watching reaffirms that terror truly does lie in the woods, lurking behind every shadow-lined tree. Stephanie Perkins takes the age-old fear of true human vulnerability and cracks it wide open, delivering a heart-pounding page turner that will make readers stay up reading until the very last page. Intense, raw, and terrifying, this story should be read in the safety of your home and reaffirms why camping alone can be terrifying, but also highlights the importance of always being prepared.
