As a young adult I became interested in a similarly young Canadian author Gordon Korman. He published his first novel as a teenager "This Can't Be Happening At MacDonald Hall". I was most touched by his "I want to go home" novel about a boy who befriends an another boy and they bond over the mutual desire to escape the summer camp and go through a series of funny schemes. I loved the way I could visualize the scenes and his use of the boys as anti establishment heroes going against the norm and forging their own path.
