Camp X: Book 1

by Eric Walters

Penguin Group Canada | February 4, 2003 | Mass Market Paperbound

Camp X: Book 1 is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 12.

It''s 1943, and nearly-12-year-old George and his older brother Jack are spending a restless wartime summer in Whitby, Ontario, where their mom is working at a munitions plant while their dad is off fighting the Germans. One afternoon, the boys stumble across Canada''s top-secret spy camp-and so begins an exciting and terrifying adventure as George and Jack get caught up in the covert activities of Camp X.

Fascinated by Camp X and its secrets, the boys begin to suspect local townspeople of being spies. Is the police chief keeping tabs on people for enemy purposes? Is Jack''s boss at the newspaper really amassing information for sinister reasons?

Unable to resist the camp''s allure, the boys keep going back to find out more details of what''s going on-they even meet William Stephenson, the Man Called Intrepid himself. They also attract the attention of a very sinister character, someone who is determined to use George and Jack''s knowledge against the Allies, no matter the consequences . . . or the casualties.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Beautifully Canadian" I really like Canadian books, but I used to live half and hour away from where this book was highlighted, and the book was actually, funny, thrilling and exciting as I was on the edge of my seat for every moment of the book. Eric Walters wrote the book amazingly and I loved every moment of the book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Read Camp X is an amazing book. This is my fifth time reading it and i still can't seem to put it down! Camp X is filled with action and adventure that makes you want to know happens next. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a great read. Although its an easy read it still does a great job of describing everything and you can really visualize what jack and george are doing. This is my favorite book out of the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best book on earth! Reviewed by Grade Five student Robert M. I think that this is the BEST book ever! You really can't get any better books than this one! This story is about 2 kids in WWII, who live in Whitby, Ontario, and discover that there are Nazis in their town! This book is great! 106/100.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Teen's WW2 Novel Series! A great epic adventure with 2 young boys who are on a journey to save their country! A great read! But I recomend this book for 13 year olds instead of 10-12, because when your a little older you get more of a basic understanding of World War Two instead of just a spy action book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Book!!!! I thought, no wait, I know the book has to be the best book ever written. I simply couldn't put it down. No wonder I read it in about a week's time! There's a lot of adventure, mystery, and well I'll let you find that out for your self. But take it from me this book would most likely be the best book you've ever read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Book I think this book was a good book. It was very suspenseful and sometimes I didn't know what was going to happen! I was definitely surprised at how it ended, yet for some reason I think I knew it but just didn't think it was possible. This book keeps you guessing from start to finish!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Camp X is awesome This book has surprised me. I would of thought that this book would've been the same as any old book. This one though has some potential. The author, Eric Walters, has done an absolutly tremendous job in writing this novel. He has done some amazing research and the time period for this book is awesome. I just couldn't beleive that this book is a true story, but the characters are fictional... I hope if anyone buys this book, that they will like it as much as I did! Sincerely Eric
