Jacob pulled his hand out of the pocket and held it up to his face. His eyes went wide and his breath latched in his throat.

His hand was coated in blood.

It’s the last summer before high school. Four friends, Jacob, Ichiro, Hannah and Hayden, vow to make it epic — one to remember. But when they discover an abandoned house on a forgotten island, their fun takes a dark turn. Terrified by what they learn about the house called Summer’s End, but unable to resist its call, they decide to camp out on the island. . . and their summer to remember turns into a nightmare they won’t soon forget.

“A great premise, a cool twist, and an exciting climax . . .”
— Allan Stratton, author of The Dogs
