Author: Katherine Arden
From the pen of author Katherine Arden comes yet another brilliant and chilling tale of the horrors faced by best friends Ollie, Brian, and Coco. Having outwitted the malevolent Smiling Man yet again and narrowly escaped the snows of Mt. Hemlock, the trio has sworn off remote and haunted places for good. But when their parents plan a "fun" boat trip to Lake Champlain — insisting that the kids come along — it seems like their supernatural troubles might not be over after all. And if that wasn't bad enough, their arch-frenemy Phil has been invited on the boat trip as well! When a lake monster destroys their boat, they end up shipwrecked on a deserted island. It isn't just any island though. It's hidden from the outside world in a fog, and unless everyone works together to find a way to escape, they might never get out...
Can the trio survive their "relaxing" vacation? Will the Smiling Man make his return? Is Phil as bad as he seems?
