The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore

by Kim Fu
ebook

"A sensitive, evocative exploration of how the past threads itself through our lives, reemerging in unexpected ways."—Celeste Ng, #1 New York Times bestselling author

At Forevermore, a sleepaway camp in the Pacific Northwest, campers are promised adventures in the woods, songs by the fire, and lifelong friends. Bursting with excitement and nervous energy, five girls set off on an overnight kayaking trip to a nearby island. But before the night is over, they find themselves stranded, with no adults to help them survive or guide them home.

The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore follows Nita, Andee, Isabel, Dina, and Siobhan beyond this fateful trip, showing us the lives of the haunted and complex women these girls become. From award-winning novelist Kim Fu comes a stunning portrait of girlhood, the nuances of survival, and the pasts we can't escape.

"[Fu] is a propulsive storyteller, using clear and cutting prose to move seamlessly through time . . . In the one-way glass of the novel, we watch the girls of Forevermore from a series of angles, in all their private anguishes. We lean closer, unable to turn away."—The New York Times Book Review
"Fu precisely renders the banal humiliations of childhood, the chilling steps humans take to survive, and the way time warps memory."—Publishers Weekly

"An unblinking view of the social and emotional survival of the fittest that all too often marks the female coming of age."—Toronto Star
"These portraits of sisterhood, motherhood, daughterhood, wifehood, girlfriendhood, independent womanhood, and other female-identified-hoods sing and groan and scream with complexity and nuance, and they make me want to read her next ten books."—The Stranger
