Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Humor and hijinks are the name of the survival game for 16-year-old Henry Lambert. He is the consummate geeky gamer, and, according to his father, Henry's masculinity could use a boost. Thus, Henry finds himself shipped off to Strongwoods Survival Camp alongside his similarly nerdy best friend, Randy, and three other boys. The camp director, Max, is the typical drill instructor doling out challenges and punishments to whip the boys into fighting shape for the Strongwoods Survival Games. The antics are increased even more when a man named Mr. Grand and his thugs show up to collect on a debt and the boys find themselves having to put their survival skills (or lack thereof) to good use. A girl from the neighboring music camp adds a dash of romantic drama. Readers immediately learn that the events at Strongwoods are later made into an action film straight out of Hollywood; the story is told by alternating between Henry attending the movie's premiere and the book version of what actually happened. While the plot and characters are fairly predictable, it works. Purposefully bad wilderness survival tips at the end of each chapter add a bit of sarcastic comedy. The short chapters, writing style, and humor make this a good choice for reluctant readers. Give this one to fans of the Home Alone movies and readers who love caper stories.—Kimberly Castle-Alberts, Hudson Library & Historical Society, OH

From Booklist

It’s not exactly the Hunger Games, but don’t tell that to this group of geeks dragged to a wilderness survival camp. As if the prospect of two weeks without video games or cell phones isn’t sobering enough to Henry and his five new buddies, the introductory dressing-down delivered by the drill sergeant camp leader, Max, is: “The showers WILL be cold. The food WILL be disgusting. There is only one thing in the entire world that I truly fear, and that is the outhouse you will be using.” The camp, however, does not unfold in the way that Henry imagines, as the odd bear and other predictable wilderness challenges are joined by a trio of trigger-happy mobsters as well as Monica, a tough, hot, dazzlingly competent visitor from the nearby girls’ music camp. As in his A Bad Day for Voodoo (2012), Strand couples a rapid patter of well-tuned gags and teen banter with a plot marked by sudden violence and intervals of intense terror. It’s humor of a knee-slapping, yet decidedly edgy kind. Grades 6-9. --John Peters
