Description

Summer camp is supposed to be about finding nirvana in a rock garden... But Elodie prefers Nirvana and Soundgarden. Can she confront rambunctious kids, confusing feelings, and supernatural horrors all at once?

Summer 1994: with just two months left before college, Elodie is forced by her mother to take a job as a camp counselor. She doesn't know the first thing about nature, or sports, of kids for that matter, and isn't especially interested in learning... but now she's responsible for a foul-mouthed horde of red-headed girls who just might win her over, whether she likes it or not. Just as Elodie starts getting used to her new environment, though -- and close to one of the other counselors -- a dark mystery lurking around the camp begins to haunt her dreams.


Praise For Camp Spirit

“At first glance, a light and frothy comedy, but little by little it transforms into something wild.” — BDGest

“Axelle Lenoir weaves a sympathetic story around a very endearing heroine. Inside: tons of humor and a beautiful accuracy in human relationships, but also a veil of mystery that makes us even more eager to read to the end!” — Canal BD

“Perfect light reading for the summer, proving that the classic blend of fantasy and teenage comedy still works!” — BoDoi

“Axelle Lenoir is still a teenager at heart… Camp Spirit is a summer read that makes us relive our first emotions of adolescence with a smile.” — Le Journal de Québec

Camp Spirit is a solid example of the genre, it is a bright, enjoyable story, perfect for the intended teenage audience and anyone else who has passion for coming-of-age stories.” — British Fantasy Society

About the Author

Axelle Lenoir started out as a 2D artist in 1999, for a Quebec City video game company. In 2003, wanting to escape the large production teams in order to get more creative freedom (and because she's a kind of a control freak), she quit and made her first steps in comic books. The Switzerland publisher Paquet, published the Mertownville trilogy in the mid-2000s. Since then, Axelle's works were edited by French, Belgian and Canadian publishers. Her most recent series, Camp Spirit (Lounak Books and Top Shelf), is a coming-of-age story about an unlikely friendship between Catherine and Elodie, two summer camp counselors. Axelle's writing style is a mix between humor, everyday life situations, fantasy and comic strips. She likes to write about women, teenagers, folklore, parallel universes and stupid cats.
