Called Upon: A Novel

Told from the perspective of three seemingly unconnected teenagers, Called Upon steers the adolescent reader through a series of twists and turns that merge together with jaw-dropping results.

Kaitlin, the social pariah of her high school, is so relieved to have made friends at Camp Overlook that she is willing to look past the camp’s anomalies: creepy counselors, 24-hour video surveillance, and campers disappearing quietly into the night. Dr. Forsythe, the mastermind behind the Overlook experiment, explains that Kaitlin has a genetic gift―one which laid dormant until her stay at summer camp. Having never considered herself normal, let alone special, Kaitlin is dazzled to have an ability with world-changing implications.

After a terrifying warning from Dr. Forsythe’s embittered son and then discovering a dead body in the doctor’s walk-in freezer, Kaitlin must decide whether to embrace her new gift and follow Dr. Forsythe or use her gift to defeat the very system from which it was created. By the end, readers come away from Called Upon feeling surprised and exhilarated, they will also, like Kaitlin, leave with a new understanding of their own intrinsic worth and limitless potential.

    A well written gem by a new author!
    The book gives an intriguing page turning dark introduction that evolves into a fun yet mysterious summer camp for teens. Much of the story is set at Camp Overlook in Colorado (seems the author is a fan of SK!). Where the teens have a great time hanging out, being treated like royalty, fun & games along with some classes. But something is not as it seems in the all too perfect camp. Some of the campers get sick and mysteriously disappear in the night and some of the staff are entirely too nice while others are creepy eyed and cold. The story is told from the POV of three teens and the more it progresses the Creepy factor goes up along with the Mystery, a Psychological Thriller. By the way it ended I am hoping it is the first in a series but could still be read as a Standalone even though I doubt you’ll want to stop there if the story continues in the future.

      Olivia, thank you so much! Putting this book out there is such an emotional rollercoaster, so hearing this type of feedback inspires me to keep going. Yep, a second book is in the works and there will be plenty of surprises and perhaps a little love triangle (My heart will always belong to Max, but will Kaitlin’s….?) Standby.
