THE TROOP (NICK CUTTER)
Pocket|February 25, 2014|Trade Paperback|ISBN: 978-1-4767-6737-6
Once a year, Scoutmaster Tim Riggs leads a troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for a weekend camping trip - a tradition as comforting and reliable as a good ghost story around a roaring bonfire. But when an unexpected intruder stumbles upon their campsite - shockingly thin, disturbingly pale, and voraciously hungry - Tim and the boys are exposed to something far more frightening than any tale of terror. The human carrier of a bioengineered nightmare. A horror that spreads faster than fear. A harrowing struggle for survival with no escape from the elements, the infected...or one another.
Whoa! This was a page-turner and a story that was certainly written for teens. It's a great book for adults as well but teenagers would especially appreciate this brand of novel for sure. All you teens out there who don't like to read, pick this one up and give it a go, I think you'll be very happy that you did and it might just get you interested in scoping out other similar novels. Very well-written. Intense and fast-moving.
