Surviving the Fog - Kathy's Recollections
Surviving the Fog #2

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review and the first thing I noticed was that this was a parallel story from the point of view of one of the characters in a previous book, "Surviving the Fog". I was greatly impressed that I did not need to read the first book in order to enjoy Kathy's Recollections, and from what I understand, this book delved deeper into relationships, characters, and the Fog itself.
The story is about a group of kids sent off to summer camp, but not just any summer camp. This retreat's theme is Abstinence and Safe Sex. It really is. Once you get past that, however, you start seeing how it's about so much more than that. The camp councilors want to teach the kids about respect for self and others. I'm guessing their methods wouldn't have been nearly as effective as the life and death struggles that become the real teachers once the Fog traps the campers on the mountain.
Alone. With no adults. A dwindling food supply. And other survivors.
Kathy's Recollections is a big book. You won't finish this one in a single sitting! It contains some violence, which is unavoidable in a realistic tale of survival, as well as valuable lesson learning, relationship building, and heartwarming coming togethers. If you like survival stories, you won't want to miss this one!
