about

From award-winning author Eric Walters comes the thrilling World War II spy series Camp X. Camp X It's 1942, and nearly-twelve-year-old George and his older brother, Jack, are spending a restless wartime summer in Whitby, Ontario. Their mom is working at the local munitions factory while their dad is off fighting the Germans in Europe. 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. In the most exciting summer of their lives, George and Jack find themselves enlisted in the fight against the Axis. And they learn a frightening and important lesson: in war, everybody is under suspicion ... including themselves. Camp 30 Jack and George have barely recovered from their ordeal in Camp X when they are relocated to Bowmanville, Ontario, where their mother has been offered a clerking job in a prisoner of war camp holding the highest-ranking German officers. Soon the boys are offered an after-school job delivering the camp's mail, and Canadian agents ask them to keep their eyes and ears open for possible escape plans. For, as the boys are told, it is a matter of loyalty to their homeland that the German prisoners must try to escape, even if it costs them their lives—and the lives of two boys in the wrong place at the wrong time. Fool's Gold It's been months since brothers Jack and George's adventure in Camp 30, where they'd been sent to spy on the high-ranking German prisoners of war. Now they're hoping that life will return to normal. But they're proved terribly wrong when their mother is kidnapped by three thugs who seem to know all about the boys' pasts. Before they know it, they're on a terrifying new adventure back to Camp X to unearth a buried stash of gold, without which they'll never see their mother again. Shell-Shocked Jack and George have assumed new identities and are back at work as special operatives, keeping an eye out for suspicious activity at an ammunitions plant. They don't have to wait long before they uncover a plot by German spies to blow up the plant and everyone in it! It's up to the quick-thinking young teens to find a way to stop the Nazis and stay alive while doing it... Trouble in Paradise After stumbling upon a top-secret spy camp, being unofficially recruited in the fight against the Axis, and barely surviving a Nazi plot to blow up an ammunitions plant, brothers George and Jack think they've finally left trouble behind them. But when the boys uncover an enemy plot that would put the lives of their loved ones in jeopardy and change the entire face of the war, they realize they're in deeper trouble than ever before.
