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.

  2. As the title suggests, a murder takes place at a fat camp for kids.As always, the first part is taken up with character introductions, though some of them aren t all that well done I thought Gwen would be my early favorite, despite the fact I usually don t like nurses, but she turned out to be a disappointment for a number of reasons, especially the smoking And she s not very smart either, considering she s always doing things she shouldn t right where the kids can see her Hello You ve got fores [...]


  3. Dead Weight Murder at Camp Bloom is a fun as fun as murder can be romp through a murder mystery with teens at the helm of solving it The story takes place at Camp Bloom, a weight loss camp for teens Some of the campers know each other and are familiar with the place, but others are new Four of the characters make fast friends, especially when a couple of them witness one of the counselors getting murdered But that s not all as the group starts to put the clues together, even mystery and mayhem [...]


  4. What a great start to, what I hope becomes, a great series The group of friends in here is the perfect blend of misfits The authors do a great job of providing enough detail so that you understand enough of the character to build a version in your mind that will stick with you after the story ends The artwork I d also the perfect fit While this is definitely a kids series, I would probably recommend it to kids who are a little bit older, possibly preteen, depending on the child The reason for th [...]


  5. Dead Weight is a mystery as much as a graphic novel A murderer is at fat camp Four campers team up to solve a murder when they stumble on a counselor s body I love the art in this graphic novel The diverse group of campers are drawn so well that each personality comes alive with the art alone, reminding me a little bit of Gravity Falls and Lumber Janes I noticed as I was reading that I had distinctive voices decided for each character in my head all shaped from the artist s depiction The mystery [...]

  8. As a fat kid from Oregon I knew I had to read this While I didn t love it, it was fun and I did enjoy it after all I always love a good murder mystery The story wasn t easy to guess but I felt like it was lacking something Maybe I wanted Oregon rep in the book otherwise why mention it in the back Would still pick up a vol 2 Thanks to Oni and Netgalley for a free copy in exchange for an honest review.


  9. A murder mystery set in a summer fat camp that s all I needed to know.The illustrations in this comic are gorgeous and beautifully styled Though the story takes place in a fat camp, it s not trying to preach or harp on about the psychology and health issues surrounding obesity it s just an interesting setting for kids to meet each other.It s a typical misfit kids find each other and solve a murder book love the genre but it s inclusive in cast without making a big deal about it, rather than a bu [...]


  10. What it is This comic book style story for middle grade readers follows some children at a fat camp as they try to solve a mystery.What I expected Simple characters and a simple story because it is a middle grade comic book What I got wowza I m impressed This book kept me interested until the very end The illustrations are gorgeous and the story is a lot of fun I am pleased to say that it kept me guessing, rather than having an obvious answer to the mystery right away Overall this was an enjoyab [...]


  11. A great little comic about crime and friendship I loved how the characters all came together and solved the mystery The progression of the story was very well planed out and i liked how the drama and the tension built up over the volumes The characters were all fully developed and part of me wished that i could join in their hunt.I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.


  12. I received an e arc from Netgalley and ONI Press for an honest review Look out Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, there s a new crime club in town As soon as I saw that this was about a murder and summer camp, I had to read it It was a fun, fast read with a cast of diverse characters, can t wait to read of their adventures.



  13. This a really fun murder mystery at fat camp A group of campers get caught up in a dangerous mystery The art style fits the story perfectly It reminds me of the cartoons I loved in the 90s Such a fun read


  14. The characters in this graphic novel were well developed given the short length The mystery aspect played out nicely moving the plot along at a good pace Fans of the cozy mystery genre would enjoy this The art style was clear and beautifully done So much diversity in this story As a plus size lady I enjoyed the fat camp aspect and the body positivity showed I want graphic novels like this ARC provided by NetGalley.


  15. This review is based on an advance copy that didn t have full color art throughout I like the diverse cast of characters and the setting fat camp and the clean lines in the artwork, but the story itself was too generic to make any kind of lasting impact on me Keep in mind I ve read a LOT of genre comics, so it takes a lot to impress me these days It s marketed to the Lumberjanes crowd and I m sure they d be pleased with it.
