Blog Tour | The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore by Kim Fu

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another blog tour!

In today's blog tour we are going to be discussing Kim Fu's novel "The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore" 




The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore by Kim Fu


15/02/2019 | Legend Press


A group of young girls descend on a sleepaway camp where their days are filled with swimming lessons, friendship bracelets, and 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 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. 
A portrait of friendship and of the families we build for ourselves, and the pasts we can't escape.

My Thoughts

The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore was an interesting read!
I LOVE books about survival, but rarely do we see books that go into the lives of the people involved to see what their life is like after, and how much of an impact it has made. 
I really enjoyed how it did go from what was happening at the camp to describe one of the girl's lives. 
This book was like short stories woven into one. It was mainly focused on the characters experiences, rather than what was happening at the camp, which was different.
It's definitely not a sleepover for the faint hearted!
