Rating: 3/5


Callie Brown has decided to reunite with her old high school friends on a mountain trip for ten days. She is not really convinced about the rejoin, because one of her old friends commit suicide in front of all of them on their last party during high school. Her instincts seem to alert that maybe there is something more behind this meeting but she decides not to trust them and go on with the journey.
After a few days hiking, everything is odd and their team leader, Bryan, acts really suspicious... He commits suicide in front of them, blames them for the lost of their friends and leaves them lost in the forest, then is when the danger really begins...

"Callie sent up a message to whoever might be listening: Please let us be lucky today;
They would need some greenery to go with whatever the two men brought back, "Anyone wanna help me go choose some veggies?" Callie asked. "The lads have gone to the meat department."

This thriller accompanies you in a frenetic trip of some "friends" lost that have to survive in a mountain without food or any map to help them. And with a killer among them?
While I was reading this book, I remembered the famous film "I Know What You Did Last Summer", it has some similarity with the murders and the past of all of them mixed in their present life. But the book is more frightening and dangerous, and the scenery seems so beautiful...
I marked this book so low because some of the plot seems not really solved after you finish the book. You really don't know how the friend killed herself a long time ago, was it really a suicide or a murder? And Jack (one of the principal characters) seems to have deep feelings towards Callie, and he didn't speak to her at any time... maybe on a second part?
Ready for a high school reunion?
