Product Description

From Amazon

In Camp X, popular young-adult novelist Eric Walters shows the domestic side of the Second World War, telling the story of two young boys and their wartime adventures in Canada. Even though all the fighting was happening overseas, the two brothers realize that another type of crucial struggle is taking place right under their noses. George, 12, and Jack, 14, live in the town of Whitby in rural Ontario. Their mother works in a munitions plant nearby, and their father is fighting overseas. It's summer vacation, so the boys have plenty of time on their hands, and Jack is typically leading George into trouble. While playing in the forest, they become lost and stumble across a strange military base, but are quickly told by a soldier to leave and not return.

Driven by intense curiosity, the boys return to the base, where they're discovered again and interrogated by the head of the camp, a lieutenant-colonel. They've wandered into a top-secret spy training facility. They also learn that not all dangers in the war are overseas, and that spies can lurk in the most unexpected places, even in their own town. With plenty of action and adventure and an authentic feel for the period, Camp X is a great read. (Ages 12 to 16) --Mark Frutkin --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My 11 year old grandson read this book and inspired me to read it also. It just happened to be coincidental that I had been reading 'A Man called Intrepid' about the same 'Little Bill' as featured in Camp X. A recommended book for this age. Some violence yet it highlights the dangers and damages of war in a non-gratuitous manner.
We are now reading book 3 in the series and still enjoying them immensely

A skeptic look. That’s what I got when I first showed the book to my twelve years old boy. But then he read the description in the back of the book and a smile crept on his lips. He looked at me and said “Sounds interesting.” And he took the book in to his room. Three days later, he gave it back to me saying he was done reading. Really? That was fast. How did he liked it? He responded saying that he hoped I could review other titles in the series. Mmmm! The book had caught his attention and mine as well because he usually don’t devour books like this unless it is very good and packed with mystery and action. I will admit that I started reading the book after he has done so but before I share my thoughts about it I want to share my son’s thoughts about it.

This book was amazing! This is definitively one of my favourite ones. The story was absolutely incredible. It was rich with details and action. I didn’t want to put the book down. Jack and George are extremely good agents. They’re just crazy about all that they do. I can’t wait until I can read the next book. And absolute must read.

I usually am the first to read a book before I give it to my kids. But this time around I didn’t had the time to read it first so I took a chance. I figure that since it was based on Canadian history based on war that the book would be interesting for my oldest son. I was right. So when he read it in a record time, I was curious and decided to read it as well. The book is packed with actions and is keeping you on the edge of your seat as you read it. It is hard to put it down as you go through the chapters because you always want to know more of what will be happening next.

My 11-year old son read the entire book today (at school). He loved the story. It showed him how young boys could be useful to the Canadian Army during World War II.

I liked Camp X very much. It was full of action. It's about a couple of boys (older than me, I'm 10)who discover a camp for spies. They get into a lot of trouble but always manage to get out of tight squeezes. It takes place in Whitby Ontario during the Second World War. I live in Whitby, so I recognised some of the places in the book. This is the first book I've read by Eric Walters. It's definitely not going to be the last. But first, I'm going to do a book report on this book for my grade 5 class.

Camo X was very interesting from the begining of the book. I never wanted to put the book down. When I was reading this book I really felt like I was one of the charachters, and was watching them. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate this book a 10 for it's over all entertainment, detail and excitement. I think this is a very good book.
