Scared Little Rabbits by A.V. Geiger is a YA Mystery Thriller of a girl at a summer program turned murder..
“We stand in a tight cluster, high above the lake. One-by-one, we made our way up the narrow trail from the edge of campus. Now, we wait shoulder to shoulder behind the police tape. Nineteen summer students.
All but one.
When Nora gets accepted into her dream summer program at the prestigious Winthrop Academy, she jumps at the chance to put her coding skills to use. But then a fellow student goes missing—and the tech trail for the crime leads back to Nora. With no one else to trust, Nora must race to uncover the truth and clear her name…or she might be the next to disappear.”
When a girl’s dream summer camp turns into a murder scene, her life hangs into balance. It’s now up to her to clear her name and try to find the murderer before they find her.
If you like summer camp / murder mysteries / YA high school characters, you will really enjoy this thriller.
This story was a little up and down for me. I was hooked into the nerdy, tech-heavy vibes that the summer camp brought out, but some of the characters were not my favorites, especially the main male interest. Right away I could tell that his weird charm wasn’t going to be enough for her, and I was hoping that she would connect with someone else.
But in the end, the whole murder mystery portion of the book was what got me through to the end, and that first chapter had me hooked! I gave it a 3 out of 5 star rating. It was a great ending that left me satisfied.
