What Waits in the Woods by Kieran Scott
Callie is on a camping trip with her best friends even though she is afraid of being in the woods. But since she's somewhat new to the school she doesn't want to do anything to rock the boat although she did insist on bringing along her boyfriend, Jeremy. Already on edge, Callie begins to really worry when the group becomes lost and loses some of their supplies. And Callie's sure someone has been following them. Finally, they meet another hiker who offers to help them find their way to his cabin where they can call for help, but its still a few days away. No one is sure who can be trusted and unease turns to terror when one of their group is murdered.
A quick read with red herrings galore. The mystery is helped along with interspersed chapters from the killer's "Recovery Journal".
