The Girls from Hush Cabin by MARIE HOY KENNY. Calista, Zoe, Holly, and Denise were inseparable best friends when they spent their summers together at sleepaway camp. But after an unexplained tragedy forced the camp to close, the girls drifted apart. Years later, reunited at their beloved camp counselor Violet’s funeral, they agree on one thing — Violet’s so-called accidental death was actually murder. Unwilling to leave the case unsolved, they set off to uncover the truth — even if it means revealing the dark secrets of their pasts. But anonymous threats keep coming, leaving them suspicious of everyone. No one can be trusted, not even the girls from Hush Cabin.
And Don't Look Back by REBECCA BARROW. Harlow has spent her entire life running, flitting from town to town with her mom, taking on a new personality each time. When Harlow and her mom set off on yet another 3 a.m. escape, a car accident leaves Harlow’s mother fatally wounded. Before she dies, she tells Harlow two things: where to find the key to a safety deposit box and to never stop running. In the box, Harlow finds an on-the-run essentials kit. But Harlow also finds relics of a part of her life she never knew existed. With these tantalizing clues about her mother’s secrets and the power to choose her own future for the first time, Harlow realizes she has two choices: keep fleeing her mom’s ghosts or face down the nebulous threat that’s been hanging over her for her entire life.
- After you Vanished by E. A. NEEVES. Teddy’s favorite place is Bottomrock Lake, where she’s worked as a lifeguard every summer — including last year, when her twin sister Izzy waded into the lake for a midnight swim and never came out. Now, Teddy can’t stop scripting stories for where she went. Izzy was an accomplished swimmer, so she couldn’t have drowned. And if she did somehow drown, where’s her body and why is her passport missing? When Toby, the gorgeous jerk who was with Izzy on the night she vanished, starts working as a lifeguard alongside Teddy, she can’t help but be suspicious. Can Teddy unearth the secrets he holds about her sister — without falling for the boy who watched her sister disappear?
