Boot Camp

For Ages: 12 and up
  • 9awards
From Todd Strasser, a “truly shocking” (Kliatt) account of the prison-style workings of teen boot camps.

Garrett is an average fifteen-year-old, except that he’s in love with an older woman. Even though Garrett gets good grades and hasn’t had any real discipline problems, his parents decide to ship him off to Harmony Lake, a boot camp for teenagers. He is “kidnapped” by camp employees and transported there, where after a painful attempt at rebellion he quickly figures out that the fastest way to graduate is by following all the rules.

But no matter what rules he follows, Garrett soon realizes that the people who run the boot camp won’t rest until his spirit is well and truly broken. And so, with danger at every turn, he plans a daring escape—with chilling consequences.
