The Summer Is Ended and We Are Not Yet Saved by Joey Comeau
Just in time for Halloween! This book reads exactly like a summer camp horror film. It’s a short, fast-paced gore fest and the perfect accompaniment to such horror film classics like Friday the 13th and Halloween.
Martin and his mom, a very close pair, live a quiet and fun-filled existence in Halifax. Martin’s mom left her home in Nova Scotia while pregnant and has never been back. She works at a beauty counter in a local department store and takes jobs doing special effects makeup for horror movies whenever she can get a gig. The gig of a lifetime has just been awarded to her and she wants to go to Toronto but doesn’t know what to do with her son Martin. Martin has an idea. He begs his mom to let him go to Bible Camp near his grandparent’s house, the same camp his mom attended years ago. He makes it seem like he really wants to go, but all he wants is to make sure his mom has the horror movie makeup opportunity of a lifetime.
Camp seems okay. There is chapel, cookies, campfires and chess. Unfortunately there is also carnage and cleavers. Seems like one of the staff is a little off…very off…and making a bloodbath of the camp. Will any survive?
