The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore

Kim Fu

Hardcover

February 13, 2018

From the award-winning author of For Today I Am a Boy, a gripping and deeply felt novel about a group of young girls at a remote camp -- and the night that changes everything and will shape their lives for decades to come.

A group of young girls descend on Camp Forevermore, a sleepaway camp in the Pacific Northwest, where their days are filled with swimming lessons, friendship bracelets, and camp songs by the fire. Filled with excitement and nervous energy, they set off on an overnight kayaking trip to a nearby island.

But before the night is over, they find themselves stranded, with no adults to help them survive or guide them home. The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore traces these five girls -- Nita, Kayla, Isabel, Dina, and Siobhan -- through and beyond this fateful trip. We see them through successes and failures, loving relationships and heartbreaks; we see what it means to find, and define, oneself, and the ways in which the same experience is refracted through different people.

In diamond-sharp prose, Kim Fu gives us a portrait of friendship and of the families we build for ourselves -- and the pasts we can't escape.

Editorial Reviews

“Before embarking on an overnight kayaking trip, five girls at a camp in the Pacific Northwest sing, ‘And I shall love my sisters / for-ev-er-more.’ The camp promises a vision of wholesome sisterhood that seems unaware of the complexities of young girls’ lives, a vision Kim Fu skillfully complicates in her new novel, The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore...[Kim Fu] is a propulsive storyteller, using clear and cutting prose to move seamlessly through time….In the one-way glass of the novel, we watch the girls of Forevermore from a series of angles, in all their private anguishes. We lean closer, unable to turnaway.”

– Lisa Ko, New York Times Book Review

"The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore is a sensitive, evocative exploration of how the past threads itself through our lives, reemerging in unexpected ways. Kim Fu skillfully measures how long and loudly one formative moment can reverberate."

– Celeste Ng, bestselling author of Little Fires Everywhere

"Fu is a poet and essayist, and her evocative and well-crafted writing makes The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore a quick yet deep read."

– Shondaland
