***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
College senior Leigh Swanson knew her friends’ vacation to Montreal would become a drug-and-booze-filled road trip. Yet despite her best judgment, she gave into her roommate’s pleas and hopped aboard the Canada-bound van.
It will soon prove to be the biggest mistake of her life.
On the road, Leigh and her friends meet Sam Tucker, a mysterious hitchhiker who is willing to exchange directions for a ride. Sam takes the gang on a shortcut—a detour through a dark Vermont forest. A deadly detour.
Among the many horrors that await Leigh and her friends is a fatal fungal disease, a grisly infection that has already claimed a number of victims. There is a cure—but Leigh is about to discover that sometimes, the only thing worse than sickness is:
The horror/slasher tale portrayed is nothing really new, more of a rehash of several other stories (think Texas Chainsaw Massacre) but it is done well enough that it makes for a fairly good read.
I think if you know going into it what to expect and you enjoy that sort of thing (which for the most part I do) this is definitely worth picking up. This author I feel certainly has some wordcrafting skills and I think it will be interesting to see what would happen if they push themselves out of what seems like a rather comfortable zone for them.
Over all a 3 1/2 stars out of 4 (rounded up as per my protocol) and a definite interest in seeing what this author could do with some slightly more original matrial V””V
