Cassidy Keaton is a good girl and has good grades and Ken Farquar has fallen for her during a summer camp they both went to. After school, a girl, Mary Lou, goes missing mysteriously and now has been missing for several days! Ken and Cassidy go to a school dance one night with some of their friends. Cassidy plans on going over to her best friend Patties and sleeping over after the dance. It was near the end of the dance and Patty and some of her friends were getting bored and wanted to go up to the summerhouse that was closed and have a little fun. Cassidy and Ken were invited to go up there, but, they were not sure about going up ¿ but they did. When they got up there the kids were drinking and doing drugs. When Patty and her boyfriend Ross decided to go out to the car and get some more beer, all of a sudden there was a loud scream!!!! It was Patty. Everyone comes running out of the summerhouse to see what is going on and the kids look down and there is a body and Patty¿s boyfriend said it was just a dummy until he flips it over¿¿¿it was Mary Lou, the girl that had be missing for several days! Now the kids are very scared and don¿t know what to do. So they leave the body there, clean up the summerhouse and leave. Now the kids are forced to live with knowing that Mary Lou is up there or tell. They would get in a lot of trouble if they do tell because the police will think that they killed Mary Lou. What are they going to do? I rate this book a 4 1/2. The book was very suspenseful and kept me on the edge of my seat. I like how it was written and it had a good ending. It also had a life lesson at the end of the book.
