Publisher's Summary

New from best-selling author Stephanie Perkins, and the perfect companion to her New York Times best seller There's Someone Inside Your House, available now on Netflix!

“The scares here are authentic, and the details meticulous, driven by a smart, distinct narrative voice. Hand this to fans of the film Midsommar who will delight in the eerie world building, the disintegration and rebuilding of interpersonal relationships, and the unseen forces of evil that threaten to break two friends apart.” (Booklist)

Bears aren’t the only predators in these woods. 

Best friends Neena and Josie spent high school as outsiders, but at least they had each other. Now, with college and a 2,000-mile separation looming on the horizon, they have one last chance to be together - a three-day hike deep into the woods of the Pisgah National Forest.

Simmering tensions lead to a detour off the trail and straight into a waking nightmare…and then into something far worse. Something that will test them in horrifying ways. 

Stephanie Perkins, the best-selling author of There’s Someone Inside Your House, returns with a heart-stopping, gut-wrenching novel about friendship, survival, and navigating unmarked paths even as evil watches from the shadows.

Critic Reviews

"A thrilling survival story about two teens just trying to make it to daybreak with their friendship - and their lives, too, as a horror beyond their wildest dreams lurks in the forest.... Hand this to fans of the film Midsommar, who will delight in the eerie world building, the disintegration and rebuilding of interpersonal relationships, and the unseen forces of evil that threaten to break two friends apart." (Booklist)

"Perkins crafts a lushly immersive natural setting, highlighting the tranquility of the Blue Ridge Mountains as her characters proceed through an escalating series of dire situations. Violence is quite present, but Perkins doesn’t linger on gratuitous gore, focusing instead on establishing tension and emotion in this rapidly paced dark thriller." (Publishers Weekly)

BORING!!!

If you are looking for the fast paced awesomeness that was “There’s Someone Inside Your House” keep looking this was NOT the book I was so looking forward to!! Absolutely nothing happens worth noting until literally halfway through the book. I almost DNF because it was taking forever to get to the point. There was unnecessary drama that did nothing to move the plot. Both characters were unlikeable I couldn’t root for either one. I was expecting so much more given how her first but was I was severely underwhelmed and quite frankly disappointed. I had such high hopes.

Meh!

It wasn't good like I thought it would be. A waste of my time to be frank. I didn't care for any of the characters or their outcome. I thought "There's Someone Inside Your Hous was waaaaaaay better than this snore.
