If you need an intense read to cap off your August, this is it. It’s about a camping trip in the Sierra Nevada that goes horribly, horribly wrong. A group of hikers, each with their own reasons for wanting to get away for a while, decide to traverse a trail that hasn’t been used for many years. But what they find instead of adventure is someone who didn’t want to be found. I can’t say anymore without spoiling it, so I’ll just say struggle, struggle, survival, more struggle, intense, intense, intense!
