Seeing things. You were just seeing things.

For city girl Callie Velasquez, nothing sounds more terrifying than a night out in the wilderness. But, wanting to bond with her popular new friends, Lissa and Penelope, she agrees to join them on a camping trip. At least Callie's sweet new boyfriend, Jeremy, will be coming too. But nothing goes as planned. The group loses half their food supply. Then they lose their way. And with strange sounds all around her--the snap of a twig, a sinister laugh--Callie wonders if she's losing her mind. Tensions swirl among the group, with dark secrets suddenly revealed. And then, things take a fatal turn: Callie stumbles upon a cold dead body in the woods. Is the murderer close by, watching them? Callie has to figure out where she can turn and who she can trust, before her own life is at stake. Kieran Scott weaves a thrilling mystery that explores love, loyalty--and the dangerous decisions we make in order to survive.

Read an Excerpt

From WHAT WAITS IN THE WOODSA sudden loud crack sounded in the trees. Callie grabbed Jeremy's arm and whirled around. "What was that?" she whispered. "God, Callie. Chill," Lissa said. "It was just a branch breaking or something. Are you gonna be like this the entire time? Because if you are I'm taking you back right now." Callie wasn't listening. There was a shift in the corner of her vision. A hulking movement deep within the forest. It was there, and then it was gone. Her grip on Jeremy tightened. "There's something out there," Callie insisted, her heart thudding. Something, or someone? "Come on, Cal." Penelope tugged on Callie's backpack as Lissa rolled her eyes. "It's fine. It might have been a deer." Callie took a deep breath. Her friends were right. She needed to rein it in. Still, a chill raced down her back as she glanced over her shoulder at the suspicious spot in the woods. There was nothing there. Seeing things. You were just seeing things.
