Castration Celebration by Jake Wizner

Summer camp is a pretty crazy place…  Lots of teenagers and not so many adults means that practically anything goes.  Yale University’s summer camp for the arts is no exception.  Here, we meet Max and Olivia.  Max is a bit of a player and Olivia hates men, so it’s easy to assume that they would clash.  Max decides, nevertheless, that he will do whatever it takes to get Olivia to give him a chance.  I think most guys would be afraid of Olivia, since she is writing a play called “Castration Celebration” (to work through her emotions after finding her father and his graduate assistant in a rather compromising position), but Max just seems to think of it as more of a challenge.  It’s easy to assume that Max is either crazy or stupid, but I find it kind of romantic.  (I’m weird!)  This book is not for the faint of heart, though, since there is an abundance of profanity and sexual references.  It’s pretty typical to how many teenagers speak, but it can be jarring for someone who does not frequent high schools or the Teen Area of public libraries.

Happy Reading!
