A summer of fun, flirting, & fear: where's your CAMP SPIRIT?!

December 16, 2019

A spooky LGBT hard-rock rom-com by Axelle Lenoir!

Summer camp is supposed to be about finding nirvana in a rock garden…

But Elodie prefers Nirvana and Soundgarden. Can she confront rambunctious kids, confusing feelings, and supernatural horrors all at once?

Summer 1994: with just two months left before college, Elodie is forced by her mother to take a job as a camp counselor. She doesn’t know the first thing about nature, or sports, of kids for that matter, and isn’t especially interested in learning… but now she’s responsible for a foul-mouthed horde of red-headed girls who just might win her over, whether she likes it or not. Just as Elodie starts getting used to her new environment, though — and close to one of the other counselors — a dark mystery lurking around the camp begins to haunt her dreams.

“At first glance, a light and frothy comedy, but little by little it transforms into something wild.” BDGest

“Axelle Lenoir weaves a sympathetic story around a very endearing heroine. Inside: tons of humor and a beautiful accuracy in human relationships, but also a veil of mystery that makes us even more eager to read to the end!” Canal BD

“Perfect light reading for the summer, proving that the classic blend of fantasy and teenage comedy still works!” BoDoi

“Axelle Lenoir is still a teenager at heart… Camp Spirit is a summer read that makes us relive our first emotions of adolescence with a smile.” Le Journal de Québec
