Neither artistic, dreamy Jenna nor surly, delinquent Lucas expected to find themselves at an invitation-only summer camp that turns problem children into prodigies. And yet, here they both are at Camp Fielding, settling in with all the other losers and misfits who've been shipped off by their parents in a last-ditch effort to produce a child worth bragging about.
But strange disappearances, spooky lights in the woods, and a chilling alteration that turns the dimmest, rowdiest campers into docile zombie Einsteins have Jenna and Lucas feeling more than a little suspicious . . . and a lot afraid.

Praise for Brain Camp
“Bright and expressive drawing.” —Publishers Weekly
“From its shock opening right out of a horror movie, this graphic novel sets the scene for an old-fashioned scare story. . . . Well-rounded adventure.” —Booklist
“Kim and Klavan offer a sly social commentary with a fizzy dash of stomach-lurching horror. Hicks's chunky art goes to town with the revolting possibilities. Smart, disgusting fun.” —Kirkus Reviews
“A quick and quirky graphic novel.” —School Library Journal
“Excellent, and the combination of horror, suspense, and love story are likely to interest a much broader audience than any one theme alone. Illustrations support the plot well and offer a great, if revolting, view of the aliens.” —Children's Literature
“Though Jenna and Lucas are a rather typical offbeat pairing, they are still a fun duo to follow as they try to get to the bottom of Camp Fielding. The art is very well done and complements the story, depicting it exceptionally well. . . . Great read.” —VOYA
