“Summer camp is different from high school. Something about spending the night. Things happen.”
Geography Club's Russel Middlebrook is back, and he and his friends are off to work as counselors at a summer camp. Brent Hartinger's third novel is the story of Indian legends, skinny-dipping in moonlit coves, and passionate summer romance. It's also the story of Russel's latest club, the Order of the Poison Oak, a secret society dedicated to helping its members see life's hidden beauty and accept its sometimes painful sting.

Books have always been an escape for me: initially from my studies, now from too much work. A good story is my favorite remedy.
Yes, I would because, as a sequel to the first book in his series ("The Geography Club"), author Brent Hartinger has gone in a direction that was certainly novel and opened up new opportunities for growth and experience among his characters. The unique setting for this second installment was enlightening, informative, and relevant. Certainly a treat.
Yes, and I have. As mentioned in earlier reviews, I appreciate Mr. Hartinger's respect for his characters: teens who are figuring out the world, are admittedly confused about lots of things (including their own behavior), and (most of all) speak like teens.
He's awesome. The author really retained the "teen voice" throughout this book series, but that could have easily been lost with poor narration. Mr. Hurley did a fantastic job conveying all that the characters are at this point in their lives.
"A fun follow on to Geography Club"
A fun story following on from geography club,and sees Russell and his friends going to help our at summer camp supporting children. Found the story engaging.
