The school year is about to end, and Miles Landish is ready to start his summer vacation. Especially since he just got busted, again, for stealing his classmates lunches. Not just a Twinkie here, or a sandwich there – oh no. Miles had just binged his way down the hall, breaking into lockers along the way. If the embarrassment from being caught red handed wasn’t enough, he also split his pants bending over – flashing The Goat to every teacher & student in the hallway!
The principal has had enough of Miles, and wants him to spend his senior year at another school. Well, if you’ve got snooty parents, and more money than God, you can pretty much write your own ticket – and his parents take full advantage of how much the school needs their financial support.
They put their heads together and come up with a mutually beneficial decision – send Miles to Camp Tum Tum, ‘A weight control camp for spoiled teens’, aka a Fat Camp for over privileged brats. Miles is nervous, but he knows that he needs this – he can’t lose weight on his own. He’s tried.
Camp Tum Tum is completely isolated, no phones, no computers, nothing to distract the campers. That’s a good idea, in theory. But when TSHTF, and there is no way to call for help – things spiral out of control faster than their will-power at an all you can eat buffet.

CFC is a great story, bonus for having a kick-ass title and the best cover art ever! I used to have full collections of Garbage Pail Kids, and the cover pic makes me want to jump on eBay and pay a fortune to start collecting again!

  • You finally ran across this book? I caught it a couple of years ago with a review on Amazon. I reviewed it then and fondly think of it now. Imagine what Golding could have done with Lord of the Flies if he had been given license to get extreme. Fat Camp is a good book.

    • It was THIS COVER that brought me to StrangeHouseBooks – but I owned it for a long time before reading it. I wanted to reference Lord of the Flies – but couldn’t do it in a funny enough way!

      Have you read Jimmy Pudge?
