LIKES Camp Midnight. A question that I asked myself prior to reading the story was: What kind of camp is Camp Midnight? Well, it’s a pretty awesome camp that includes what all regular camps may include: games, bonfires, and counselors. Of course, Camp Midnight is a camp for monsters! Skye. Skye is just the funniest! There were countless times that she made me literally laugh out loud. I loved her attitude towards her “step-monster,” as well as how sweet she was towards her friend Mia. The theme of the story. The theme of the story was presented very well. I felt that while the story was about one thing (a girl being sent to the wrong camp), the important theme of the story was well placed and developed. The humor + creepiness. Yes, I’m and adult, but there were times where I found Camp Midnight to be creepy (the graphics did their job). The wonderful thing is that there is humor within the story that helps with the creep factor. I really enjoyed how funny the story was (apart from Skye). It was just a wonderful mixture of the two factors. DISLIKE One thing that sort of bothered me about the story was the ending…because it came too quickly. I wanted to see more happen between a few of the characters. I would have read a whole series in the world of Camp Midnight. Camp Midnight was such an enjoyable read because of its characters, humor, and creepiness. I really loved the story and wish it was longer. I received this graphic novel from NetGalley and the publisher for an honest review.
