Abstract:

Two misfits at summer camp find inner strength and self-knowledge when they are cruelly marooned on an island by fellow campers. Literature of Delight. Two children are stripped of their clothes and marooned on an island for the night by their fellow campers. They are the "goats." They escape and learn, in addition to survival-on-the-run skills such as petty thievery and grand theft/auto, cooperation, intimacy, and loyalty. Quietly witty, this remarkable book yields new depths with each reading. Stripped and marooned on a small island by their fellow campers, a boy and a girl form an uneasy bond that grows into a deep friendship when they decide to run away and disappear without a trace.
