Kim Askew and Amy Helmes, author
Fifteen-year-old Puck thinks life as a foster kid can't get any worse, until she's abducted in the middle of the night and taken to every troubled teen's worst nightmare: brat camp. The DreamRoads director may speak in feel-good euphemisms, but she rules with an iron fist. Bending to her will is the only way to get back home, but with no real home to speak of, Puck has other ideas. She's clever and cunning enough to work the system, after all, including manipulating the lovelorn camp counselors who are supposed to be in charge. With her fellow delinquents in tow, this emotionally-guarded misfit wreaks unprecedented havoc in the wilderness. Along the way, she comes to discover that the course of true love and acceptance is a bumpy one -- but it's a journey worth taking, nonetheless.
