You won't find a more hardcore eighties slasher-film fan than high school senior Jade Daniels.  And you won't find a place less supportive of girls who wear torn T-shirts and too much eyeliner than Proofrock, nestled eight thousand feet up a mountain in Idaho, alongside Indian Lake, home to both Camp Blood - site of a massacre fifty years ago - and, as of this summer, Terra Nova, a second-home celebrity Camelot being carved out of a national forest.

That's not the only thing that's getting carved up, though - this, Jade knows, is the start of a slasher.  But what kind?  Who's wearing the mask? Jade's got an encyclopedic recall of every horror movie on the shelf, but...will that help her survive?  Can she get a final girl trained enough to stop all this from happening? Does she even want to?  Isn't a slasher exactly what her hometown deserves? 

This new novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The Only Good Indians, Stephen Graham Jones, called "one of our most talented living writers" by Tommy Orange, explorers the changing landscape of the West through his distinct voice of sharp humor and prophetic violence.  Go up the mountain to Proofrock.  See if you've got what it takes - see if your heart, too, might be a chainsaw.
