Book Description

A spooky graveyard. A creepy basement. A pair of coffins.
Thirteen-year-old Shane Andrews hates summer camp. When his parents allow him to choose, Shane decides to pick the worst camp he can find. Night Camp must be terrible. For one thing, activities take place at night and campers sleep during the day. That can’t be good, Shane reasons. His parents will realize Night Camp is even worse than they thought and they’ll come back to get him. Then Shane’s plans for summer freedom fall apart. His cousin Brad, a boy with a huge collection of tabloid magazines, convinces Shane that two of the camp counselors are vampires. Shane enlists the help of Brad and a girl camper named Nicole. The three set out to save themselves and the other campers. Then Shane uncovers the secret of Night Camp…

5.0 out of 5 stars mystery April 1, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
Night Camp is bound to reach middleschoolers with its blend of mystery, horror and humor. Each chapter leaves the reader eager for more of the twists and turns of the vampire-related plot. And what pre-teen won't relate to the concept of a camp where you are not only allowed to but must stay up all night and sleep all day? My 11-year-old grandson read it and in his words, "liked it allot." If you want your children to enjoy reading, this is the book to get them started.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different summer camp adventure April 15, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Linda Evans has written a novel that is aimed primarily for teens/young people. It is something everyone will enjoy - it is a different take on summer camps - very different!
When I was a kid at grade school, there would be assemblies showing different day camps with horseback riding, fun around the camp fire, etc.
I'd go home pumped wanting to go to summer camp, and to my dismay, my folks said - NO WAY - Wasn't the money - My 1st generation Greek American parents didn't want their kid to go somewhere they didn't know - So I have no first hand experience with going to Summer Camp - at least sleepover Summer Camp.
Apparently Shane Andrews does. His parents ship him off to Summer Camp each summer, and then strike out to do their own vacation adventure.
Usually they pick a camp for him - this year they promise it will be his choice where to spend these weeks.
Looking at all the brochures before him, he picks the one camp that sounds so off the wall - all activities will be held at night, etc. He chooses this camp hoping his parents will be freaked out by the camp's strangeness.
But NO! They are cool with it and drop him off at the designated place.
The 'camp' is a castle! The 'counselors' are nice, but really strange. All activities are indeed done at night time and for those who object to having to go to bed before dawn are looked at directly in the eyes and zap! they fall asleep!
Something is happening here!
Shane and his cousin, and new friend, Nicole, soon think the camp is run by vampires! They think the campers are meant to be 'lunch'!
Therein lies the understory of the book - does being different mean being evil, or bad?
Night Camp is a really cute book with a message that won't hit you over the head.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! April 1, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
Good read for the middle school set. Shane and friends find out things aren't always what they seem. My niece and her friends will enjoy this book about vampires. Not too scary for good younger readers either. Great pace, great story, great ending!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read...young and adult alike! June 15, 2009
By Cris
Format:Kindle Edition
While I'm definitely not the intended target age for this book, I thoroughly enjoyed it. This book was fun, light and well paced. I've never gone to camp and if I were a kid again, Night Camp would be something that would interest me...can you imagine being able to sleep the day away and stay up all night long? Unconventional but intriguing.

The plot is well thought out and not too scary. I'd recommend this for the middle school set and a bit younger. Vampires and a wild imagination make for a fun adventure and wild ride at Night Camp.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Son Says - "10 out of 10" December 25, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My son and I just finished reading "Night Camp." We started it a while ago and used it for his daily required reading. I believe he was to read at least a half hour per day for school.

This book really held my son's interest. What more could you ask for - spooky castles, caves, mysterious camp counselors, cute girls, dungeons, bats, and adventure.

I asked my son to provide his own review of the book. Here are his insights:

10 out of 10
A great kids book
I can't wait until she finishes Knight Camp (Me again: I have no idea if L.C. Evans is writing `Knight Camp' but my son would sure like her to.)

Great book. Thank you Ms. Evans!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun ride through Night Camp! January 15, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Incredible, fantastic fun. This story is great for pre-teen and teenagers but at my ripe age of 55 I enjoyed it as much as the kids I read it too. Exciting, scary and intriguing walk through a dark castle, late night hikes guided by possible vampires... this story is a page turner and perfect for any age.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like being a kid again. November 24, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book. I felt like I was 11 again. Wonderful plot, incredible chararacter, great morals, a very pleasant read. My boys are a little young for it right now, but I look forward to having them snuggle up under some blanket while I read this to them. Thank you Mrs. Evans for the incredible story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vampires with a Heart June 2, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Linda Evans has taken all the right elements and assembled them in a story that will please the young adolescents of all ages. The characters have depth and are very believeable. The story grabs you early and takes many twists and turns until you reach the conclusion. It leaves you wanting more.

More About the Author

L.C. Evans began her writing career with short stories and essays before branching out into novel writing. More than a hundred of her stories and humorous essays have been published in such magazines as Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Woman's World, Horse Illustrated, and Ladies Circle among many others. Over the years Ms. Evans has won awards in writing contests and has kept busy honing her craft by taking writing courses and attending writing seminars. She was recently a featured presenter at the Carolinas Writers Conference in Wadesboro, North Carolina. After traditional publication of Talented Horsewoman, the first of her Leigh McRae horse mystery novels, Ms. Evans decided to take control of her career by trying her hand at indie publishing.

"All this means," she says, "is that I pay for my own editing, proofreading, cover design, formatting, and all the other publishing expenses. However, I also get complete control over my books, and that means I can keep the price low. Readers on a budget will still have access to my books. I care deeply about all of my readers and I take great joy in the many fan letters readers send me."
