Unfortunately, two teenage girls and their goofy Uncle Steve find out.
Lisa (13) and Stacy (17) are on their way home from their older cousin's boring college graduation. Their Uncle Steve is behind the wheel, and takes the girls on a shortcut through the woods to avoid traffic and shorten the two-hour trip. (Steve is the annoying cheerful type; definitely not the kind of person you want to be paired with in a horror movie).
During the trip, the girls fight as usual. Lisa is still very much a child and is often bullied by her older sister, who is a little too experienced with boys and is a spoiled senior in high school.
The girls and their goofy, stupid uncle are attacked by a Bigfoot-esque creature. I've always been entertained by the idea that Bigfoot exists, and in this story he does, in all his hairy glory!! Uncle Steve becomes a casualty to the huge beast, while the girls are eventually rescued by a female sheriff named Officer Brown. But unfortunately, Officer Brown has a secret of her own; one that chills the two girls down to their bones.
While the previous story was more suspenseful, this one jumps right into action and the chilling twist has gotten praise from readers.
