A Junior Library Guild pick! Whoa!
Everything 16-year-old Henry was dreading about survival camp turns out to be true—or even worse. The only thing to help get him through is his equally unathletic best friend Randy and the discovery of a girls’ music camp just down the path.
But they’ll soon have a lot more than obnoxious “drill counselors” and too many push-ups to worry about. The owner of Strongwoods Survival Camp has taken out some loans with very dangerous men to keep himself afloat, and when a trio of them show up to collect, things go bad. Very bad. With a camp now full of armed killers, survival now has a whole new meaning for the campers…
(It’s a comedy.)
“In this gleefully… wickedly funny adventure, Strand balances action with laugh-out-loud humor, making this a thoroughly entertaining not-quite-coming-of-age tale.” – Publishers Weekly
“It’s… funny, and the gags turn in unexpected directions and would do Saturday Night Live skits proud.” – Kirkus
“Strand couples a rapid patter of well tuned gags and teen banter to a plot marked by sudden violence and intervals of intense terror. It’s humorof a knee-slapping, yet decidedly edgy kind.” – Booklist
