*Goodreads rating 4*
Author: Shabnam Minwalla
Nimmi Daruwala is about to start Grade 7. But that means, first, a Crazy +Awful = Crawful camping trip. Will she survive?

Now, Mr Bakshi, the school principal, wants to ‘repair the bonds’ and send the
class to a camp on the outskirts of Mumbai. Here, they will play team-building
games and learn to be united. Or so Mr Bakshi hopes. Fondly.
Instead, Nimmi’s class is sure there is a serial killer on the loose. There are potential
