From Ryan La Sala, the wildly popular author of Reverie, comes a twisted and tantalizing horror novel set amidst the bucolic splendor of a secluded summer retreat. Mars has always been the lesser twin, the shadow to his sister Caroline's radiance. But when Caroline dies under horrific circumstances, Mars is propelled to learn all he can about his once-inseparable sister who'd grown tragically distant. Mars's genderfluidity means he's often excluded from the traditions -- and expectations -- of his politically-connected family. This includes attendance at the prestigious Aspen Conservancy Summer Academy where his sister poured so much of her time. But with his grief still fresh, he insists on attending in her place. What Mars finds is a bucolic fairytale not meant for him. Folksy charm and sun-drenched festivities camouflage old-fashioned gender roles and a toxic preparatory rigor. Mars seeks out his sister's old friends: a group of girls dubbed the Honeys, named for the beehives they maintain behind their cabin. They are beautiful and terrifying -- and Mars is certain they're connected to Caroline's death. But the longer he stays at Aspen, the more the sweet mountain breezes give way to hints of decay. Mars's memories begin to falter, bleached beneath the relentless summer sun. Something is hunting him in broad daylight, toying with his mind. If Mars can't find it soon, it will eat him alive. Ryan La Sala writes about surreal things happening to queer people. He is the author of Reverie and Be Dazzled and lives in New York City. Visit him online at ryanlasala.com.… (mais)

Gr 9 Up—After the death of his twin, genderfluid Mars takes her place at exclusive, expensive Aspen summer camp,
where strange and dangerous things linger under the idyllic, cloyingly nostalgic surface. This slow-build horror deftly
explores grief, gender-role toxicity, and the strong grip of generational expectations.

A fun, biting, interesting twisty book! ( )

The chokehold that this book had on me from the first chapter. What an absolutely beautiful tale of suspense, mourning, and breaking through your own insecurities while shattering outdated gender norms. I saw so much of myself in this book and was delighted at every turn I never saw coming. I may just start reading this one over again this weekend after I have a few days to let it all sink in.

I will definitely be watching out for other work by the brilliant Ryan La Sala. I’ll also be looking to get a little non binary canoe floating between shores as a tattoo because those lines spoke right to my heart ( )

I loved the audio version of this book! The back ground noises really gave it the perfect reading ambience. I wish more books would do that. As far as the actual story it was good. Towards the end I was kinda over it but all in all a good book! ( )

Bizarre, dark, creepy, fun, a summer camp where something sinister is going on. I didn't know where this was going until the very end, it just kept getting more and more absurd. The characters are great, a non-binary teenager is the main character, and we follow them as things get uncovered. ( )
