The Order of the Poison Oak Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

This powerful sequel to "Geography Club" is a humorous, hip, and thoroughly engaging story filled with skinny-dipping, making out, Indian legends, and the mystery of a secret society called The Order of the Poison Oak.
