This reminds me of an old sci-fi movie and perfect for reluctant readers who need a fast pace thriller. Claire is not doing well in high school science class—she is getting desperate and when her teacher offers Saturday night extra credit—Clare has no choice but to cancel her plans with friends. Misery loves company and soon her friends join her Saturday night extra credit. It was the new smart girl, Val, who came up with going out to the bluffs to watch the meteor showers. But, she does not know the history of the
bluffs—the bluffs where a whole senior class disappeared many years ago. But this mysterious new girl has a dark side, a very dark side and Claire and her friends will not soon forget the night they spent at the bluffs—if they survive.
