Camp | L. C. Rosen
28 posts | 18 read | 33 to read
Feelgood LGBTQ romantic comedy from the acclaimed author of Jack of Hearts (And Other Parts). Sixteen-year-old Randy Kapplehoff loves spending the summer at Camp Outland, a camp for queer teens. It's where he met his best friends. It's where he takes to the stage in the big musical. And it's where he fell for Hudson Aaronson-Lim - who's only into straight-acting guys and barely knows not-at-all-straight-acting Randy even exists. This year, though, it's going to be different. Randy has reinvented himself as 'Del' - buff, masculine and on the market. Even if it means giving up show tunes, nail polish and his unicorn bedsheets, he's determined to get Hudson to fall for him. But as he and Hudson grow closer, Randy has to ask himself how much is he willing to change for love. And is it really love anyway, if Hudson doesn't know who he truly is?

I really enjoyed this book. It was an easy read that did a great job at tackling toxic masculinity and queer identity.

CarolynM Lovely book! 7mo

It may be November, but we‘re all off to camp this week on my book podcast — more specifically, CAMP by L.C. Rosen! Author Dahlia Adler joins me on today‘s episode to chat about this very special book. Camp inspires discussions about identity, how much we change ourselves for the people we love, and how queer folks can best keep each other safe. We also talk about queer lit and our own camp experiences. ⛺️ Link to listen in my bio!

1. Camp was a blast! Got some good reading done this week. Favorite was The Dating Playbook.
2. I know no campfire songs and I only have a vague recollection of spooky stories, but none that I can remember. 🤷🏻‍♀️

1. I am definitely a hotel “camper“. I need a bed.
2. Camp Reads a lot.
3. Camp by LC Rosen (seriously it's FABULOUS)
4. My goal for #LitsySummerCampReadathon is to finish my current reads and start some new ones. Non specific, but whatever.

YA/Queer/Contemporary .. Romance maybe? I love all the topics discussed in this story. Especially the part where they address one kid's homophobic parents. It reads a bit teenager-y but has a bigger purpose and I think both straight and queer people can find value in this book. There is one sex scene but I really think it's appropriate content for 16 year old readers. They're thinking about it or doing it anyway.

⭐⭐⭐⭐

nichollinlove I wanted to add that this was picked up by HBOMax for a series as well. There's potential there to do something really amazing with a show. 1y
Reggie I love love loved this book. I got my nails done for the first time last month inspired by the kids in this book. 1y
nichollinlove I can only imagine how fierce they were! Hopefully something aspiring Unicorn Trampocalypse! 💜 1y

Camp is a wonderfully funny, sweet, and positive first-love story set at a summer camp for LGBTQIA+ youth. I'm sure a piece of me loved it because summer camp was so formative in my life (my camp pictured here!) and the depiction of a camp community, as well as the sense of escape from home, felt so true. The characters are lovely and their relationships, particularly with the camp staff, are so much fun to drop in on. A perfect summer read!

CarolynM Such a lovely story❤️ 1y

Another great book from Rosen. It's sweet and funny and manages to tackle the issue of toxic masculinity in the queer community without being an issue/problem novel. Probably will read whatever this author comes out with next.

Delightful YA romance set at a Camp Outland, a summer camp for queer kids. The book explores issues of gender identity and sexuality in a fun and positive atmosphere and does a great job of promoting its message - don't let anyone else tell you who you are or what or how you should be - without preaching. I hope so much that places like Camp Outland exist in real life. This is a blame it on @Reggie - thanks Reggie, I loved it. #BookspinBingo

Camp is definitely one of the most fun books I've read in awhile! Our YA book club for adults LOVED it. It is very queer and sex positive and I'm so glad it exists. I also wish there was an adult Litsy Camp. I am still bummed that the nail polish Unicorn Trampocalypse doesn't exist though.

Cosmos_Moon I am totally for adult summer camp! I grew up spending weeks of summer at a camp in the woods, and take my kids Cub Scout camping. Litsy retreat ⛺️ 📖 📚 🏕 2y
Reggie I loved, loved, loved this book. The moment he went to his cabin and unpacked and felt like dancing and turned around and realized the rest of the campers were already dancing.... I loved everything about this book. 2y

At a camp for queer kids, randy changes who he is to get a guy. It creates drama with his friends. Lots of discussions of being true to yourself and how you act.

The name of the book's featured nail polish was "Unicorn Trampocalypse." That says it all about how much fun this story is. I liked reading a book where all the characters were so unapologetically gay. The humor was witty, the plot heartwarming, and I liked the fact that the book deals with the sex lives of teenagers in a realistic and positive way.

GingerAntics This book sounds like so much fun. 2y

This book was sooooo Gaytastic!!!!!! This is one of the best books I‘ve ever read about queer identity. It‘s YA, I laughed so hard, and so much of it hit me in the feels. Randall gets dropped off at Camp Outland, a camp for LGBT+ youth for 4 weeks. This isn‘t his first year but this year will be different as he‘s left the nail polish behind, cut his hair, and lost weight and has become “Del” so he can win over masc4masc, camp god, Hudson. Pick!!!

TrishB Love your review 😘 2y
Reggie @TrishB Thanks! It was so good! 2y

Reggie @batsy it is. Randall‘s cabin is the theatre cabin and when he gets in he‘s putting away his stuff when someone turns on a song from a musical and he starts tapping his foot thinking he wants to dance. When he turns around all the other kids are already dancing. It‘s super cute. Also his cabin counselor does drag for talent night and his drag name is Diana Loan. If it doesn‘t make sense, say it faster. Lol 2y
JoScho I have this one on hold at the library. I can‘t wait! Glad you loved it! 2y

I quite liked this book about a camp for LGBT teens. It was like the opposite of Cameron Post. This book is truly written for LGBT teens, with no explaining of our slang for the cis/het/straight folk.
