The stage is set for a fiendishly dramatic summer at theater camp for Cyn and Ryan. With NO DEMONS.
Last fall, Cynthia Rothschild saved her best friend, Annie, (and everyone else in her high school) from the demon librarian, Mr. Gabriel. But now all that demon stuff is over, and Cyn is ready to have the best summer ever -- at theater camp (!) with her former crush and now boyfriend (!!) Ryan Halsey.
Once she gets to camp, though, the Best Summer Ever does not seem to be following the script. For one thing, there is Ryan's very talented and very female lifelong camp best friend, whom he has somehow failed to mention before now. For another, it appears the demon stuff is not as entirely over as Cyn had hoped. Also, there are some secrets that perhaps she should not have kept from Ryan for quite this long.
At least any new demons that show up to ruin her summer can't possibly be as evil as Mr. Gabriel, who is, thankfully, very dead now. It's not like he could somehow come back to life to seek his terrible revenge or something. Right?
Best-selling author Michelle Knudsen brings back all of the hilarity and horror in this sizzling sequel to Evil Librarian.
