Lake Thirt3en, By Greg Herren

It seemed like a good idea at the time…

Every summer three families take a trip together—this year it’s to a remote resort in the mountains of upstate New York. Scotty, a teenager who’s just come out, is nervous about how his friends will react to him. A late night visit to an old nearby cemetery seems like a great idea to the bored teens, but the old cemetery holds dark secrets hidden for almost a century—secrets that might have been better left undisturbed.

And what originally seemed like a boring week in the mountains gradually becomes a nightmare of terror for the teens and their families…

What starts out as a joke between a group of teenagers ends up becoming something even more serious than that when they upset ghosts that are haunting the lake they are vacationing at. I do have to say that the parts of the story that involved the ghosts were written extremely well. Even when it came to describing how cold the wind felt, I almost had shivers running through my body.

While this was an interesting book to read, it seemed like it was extremely predictable as to how the story was going to end. That didn’t take away too much from the story; I was just upset as to how I figured out what was going to happen next. If you do enjoy reading ghost stories however, then you really should check out this book. I think that you would enjoy it.
