Présentation de l'éditeur

Book 2 in the Lambda Award-winning Russel Middlebrook Series.

Summer camp is different from high school. Something about spending the night. Things happen.

Geography Club’s Russel Middlebrook is back, and he's going to work as a summer camp counselor with his best friends Min and Gunnar. He's sick and tired of being openly gay in high school, and a peaceful summer at Camp Serenity is just what he needs to relieve the stress that comes from being an "out" teenager

But he doesn't count on sudden new rivalries with Min and Gunnar, or having to chase after a cabin full of unruly campers. And he especially doesn't count on a fellow counselor as hunky as Web Bastion.

Things do happen at Camp Serenity, especially at night. Brent Hartinger's third novel is a story about Indian legends, skinny-dipping in moonlit coves, and the mysteries of a secret society called the Order of the Poison Oak. But more than anything, this witty page-turner is about bravery in the face of unexpected danger, the passion of a sizzling summer romance, and, most of all, the courage to be yourself.

The best gay themed book...ever 29 mars 2005
Par Eric Danforth - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I am a huge fan of Geography Club, the previous book by Brent Hartinger involving gay teen Russell, so when I heard there was going to be a sequel I was really worried(especially since it had the title Order of The Poison Oak, sorry Brent sounded a lil corny), however as I read my copy which I purchased from wink wink, I soon realized it was even better than Geography Club. The characters and events just draw you in, and the part when Russell finally has someone look at him in the way that Peppermint Patty looked at the red haired girl, brought tears to my eyes. But this book, even if you are not gay, you will relate to how hard it is growing up and you will be smiling when you finish the book.

P.S. To Brent: Thanks for not including Kevin in this book!

Brent Hartinger is funny and tender and real. Although this book (and his others) feature a gay teen, ALL teents and adults who like to read young adult books should read him. No matter your sexual prefernce, you will appreciate his messages of acceptance and understanding and his great writing.

Mesmerizing and edgy look at life at a Summer Camp 29 mars 2005
Par Condiment Grrl - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I loved "The Geography Club," so I had trepidations when I eagerly snatched up the sequel. But they were quickly short-lived as I quickly got involved in the machinations of Russel, Min and Gunnar at a summer camp.

This sequel is a rarity in that the main character actually grows in a new direction from the previous book. Usually, the character just seems to go through the exact same journey. But we see Russel grapple with the whys and hows of expanding his romantic horizons and himself into the outside world from the confines of high school. His relationship with a caddish counselor is very compelling as is Gunnar's journey towards FINALLY getting a girlfriend.

It's a real story well-told. Fast, funny and touching.

Midwest Book Review: April 2005 Issue 30 mars 2005
Par Lori L. Lake - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Russel Middlebrook, a high school student readers last met in the novel GEOGRAPHY CLUB, is near the end of a very traumatic sophomore year. He was outed in the previous book, and he faced up to the ramifications of that, some of which continue on in the form of low-level verbal abuse from other students. "I'd put up with this kind of crap ever since we'd gone public with our Gay-Straight-Bisexual Alliance, and frankly I was getting pretty tired of it. Yeah, yeah, sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me. First of all, anyone who thinks that words can't hurt you has obviously never taken sophomore P.E. And second, did it ever occur to whoever wrote that stupid adage that hurtful words might be a pretty good indication that sticks and stones are on the way?" (p. 2).

From the start, it's clear that Russel has a good sense of humor and that he is strong enough to weather the ups and downs of his newly admitted gay status. But that doesn't mean it's easy, so he is glad that summer arrives, and he is heading off to be a camp counselor with his best friends Min and Gunnar. He figures they'll goof off, swim, play games with kids, and generally have a great time. No one need ever know he's gay. What a surprise to find out how wrong he is!

For the first two-week camp session, Russel is assigned a cabin of ten-year-old boys, all of whom are burn survivors. They go on the rampage almost immediately. At first Russel is inclined to cut them far too much slack because he pities them, but he quickly loses control. Some of the early laughs in the book come from his internal musings about what brats they all are and how helpless he feels trying to keep them in line. Pity doesn't help; he has to learn to treat them the same as other kids and hold them to the same standards.

Meanwhile, he doesn't see that much of Min and Gunnar, but he does meet one of the other counselors, Web Bastian, who is a real looker. Unfortunately, Min is also enamored with Web, and Russel's friendship with Min could be at risk. In fact, his friendship with Gunnar suffers some slings and arrows, too, and Russel is at wit's end. Only Otto, another counselor who attended the camp when he was younger and is also a burn survivor, is a steadying force for Russel.

The story reads very much like a teenager is narrating it. At the same time, Russel has an intuitive side to him that is a delight. His strong heart shines through every chapter of the book as he learns that scars-both internal and external-as well as secrets can bring people together and tear them apart as well. Hartinger shares the weaknesses in his well-written teenage character as well as his strengths. By showing the discrimination toward both gay youth and toward the scarred burn victims, the author makes it clear that any kind of unfairness, any kind of pain is hard on kids, and only by banding together for support can it be transcended.

This is a funny, touching novel about the continued growth and self-awareness that one young man attains during what should be ordinary summer camp events, but are really quite extraordinary experiences. Russel is the kind of character you wished you knew in real life, and this is a book that stays with you long after you've finished it. With this third novel from Brent Hartinger, I can see that he is an author who is only becoming more accomplished in his writing style, and I look forward to many years of reading his work. This book is highly recommended for all youth, ages 13 to 113. ~Lori L. Lake, independent reviewer, Midwest Book Review

even better than the first 14 septembre 2011
Par NC:theothergardenstate - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I am dumbfounded by Hazel Rochman's Booklist review here on Amazon where she writes "There's too much metaphor and message, including the stories Russel tells the kids ..." On the contrary, the first scene being referenced is one of the most beautiful in the book. It was set up perfectly, naturally, and I didn't find it "too much," or preachy, or any of that. And that Russel's tales and interactions don't always go well - at all - is just another natural (if sometimes painful) part of his journey.

Being with Russel as he experiences and learns and grows and screws up is a giddy, wonderful ride, and his character is all the more endearing for his humanity. He makes mistakes, sometimes terrible mistakes with his dearest friends, and learns sometimes, and messes up again other times, and opportunities to do the right thing in new circumstances (even if the past can't be fixed) keep coming up. It's a lot like life. Russel continues trying to sort out how to handle his being gay in the teenage landscape, and his struggles and journey were irresistible and very familiar to this gay adult.

I'll add also that I have a minor facial disfigurement (though not from a burn), and from my vantage point, Mr. Hartinger was spot-on understanding the whole dynamic and psychology of the disfigured kids who attended the first session of summer camp. Russel's final conversation with one of the kids before they depart was astonishing, and natural, and it bespoke a level of maturity (minus the heavy, pontificating capital "M") that many so-called "adults" never reach. Yet nothing about it felt out-of-place or precocious or inauthentic. It all fit. It all worked. I am thrilled that gay kids nowadays have a book like this available to them to help them survive through what for most of us is the hell of adolescence. And that straight kids too might arrive at some compassion and understanding after reading this. And even that gay adults can find in this character's journey some affirmation and peace for the similar paths that we have already walked.
