Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 6 Up—When Jesse and Noah, two teens at a weight loss camp, stumble upon the body of a murdered counselor, they and two other campers, Kate and Tony, begin an investigation into the secrets of Camp Bloom. This engaging title is a promising start to what will hopefully be an ongoing series. Blas and Muldoon offer a refreshingly nuanced perspective on body image. The four central characters are fully realized with their own quirks and opinions—especially Jesse, who questions why she even needs to lose weight. Readers will be intrigued by many of the secondary characters, and this world may offer more stories that reflect changing attitudes toward so-called misfits. Exaggerated cartoonish illustrations are reminiscent of popular comics or TV series such as Adventure Time and The Regular Show and will appeal to tweens and younger teens. VERDICT A solid addition to graphic novel collections, particularly where comics such as "Lumberjanes" and "Backstagers" are popular.—Maryanne Olson, Queens Borough Public Library, NY --This text refers to the paperback edition.
