The Rising Authors are a select group of students who set out on a mission to become published authors. They started writing a short story that, over the span of eight months, became a novel. Each student, along with their teacher, created a unique character; and together they took their characters and themselves on a journey of self-discovery. In collaboration with over 100 high school students, who became their editors and graphic designers, these students achieved the publication of their first novel: Camp Clearwater.
It was just a camp...until the day nine mix-matched kids arrive at Camp Clearwater. Their dysfunctions take them into the woods in a twisted game of wilderness therapy, but the game quickly ends when even the counselor gets lost. Will it be too late before they learn to work together? Will...they...cope?
