Bestseller Book Dead Weight: Murder at Camp Bloom Dawn of a New Day?This is a teenage, sleuth-squad, summer camp, mystery adventure. Just like they've been writing since Pee-Wee Harris was a Boy Scout in 1922. But, I'm pretty sure I don't remember Pee-Wee sharing adventures with Black, Latino, and gay/lesbian companions. As I say, dawn of a new day. Fine by me.The main appeal here is that the emphasis is on the forming of a friendship among four new campers who have to, (and want to), work together to solve a murder they witnessed at their fat camp. They just are who they are and none of that figures in the plot or even much as a matter of background. The four kids have distinct personalities, and they have to make an effort to mesh to form a functioning team, but none of the kids are used as symbols or signifiers for any particular agenda. They are just a mixed bag of regular kids. So, as it should be, the question becomes - are these kids worth following and is the mystery decent? I thought the answers to both questions are "yes". The setup is that the kids are at a summer fat camp. There are about a hundred campers and about nine staff members. Our four future heroes don't really know each other until circumstances force them together. Two of the kids happen to witness a murder in the camp woods. They get some grainy phone camera photos. The next day a counselor is missing, but there's no body and no one suspects anything is out of place. The two kids turn to a third kid who's sort of techy geek to check out the photos and a fourth kid who is woodsy enough to try to find clues at the forest crime scene. There's our team. For various reasons each wants to solve the crime and so they start to work together. The rest is clue following, lurking, spying, and investigating. There's a socko and satisfying action finish that wraps everything up.The bottom line is that all four kids ended up being engaging, and each took a step closer to finding his or her hero within. The mystery was fair enough for this sort of book, with decent suspects, motives, and clues. The drawings were crisp, if a bit on the cartoony side, and well colored and rendered. Of importance to me, it was always clear which character was which, and the drawings were expressive and crisp so the action was always clear. I thought this was a fine and entertaining middle grade mystery with good pacing and energy and a gungho sort of vibe. A nice find.(Please note that I received a free advance will-self-destruct-in-x-days Adobe Digital copy of this book without a review requirement, or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review.
