Troop 142 follows a group of campers and counselors at a week-long scout retreat in the woods of New Jersey. It is a story as much about adults as it is adolescents, the blurred line between childhood and manhood, and the consequences of authoritative posturing. Dispensing with idyllic notions, Dawson describes the hilarious and brutal truths about boys and men, the hypocrisy of institutional morality and the resilience of Spam and the human spirit.

Set in the same universe as Troop 142, Dawson's much acclaimed tale of Boy Scouts gone wild, Angie Bongiolatti puts away childish things and moves into the city. Growing up is hard to do in a society overwhelmed by pre-millennium tension, Y2K bugs, endless war and bursting bubble economies. Angie finds herself stretched thin as the common thread between these newly minted adults.

Eleanor Davis, author of Stinky and How to be Happy, says:

"I love Angie Bongiolatti and its swimming cast of characters, even as I cringe to see myself there: sad and stupid, selfish and small, needing a shower. In a world filled with people who struggle to be good despite being - unattractively, uncomfortably, unacceptably - human, Dawson holds up a gentle and forgiving mirror."

240 pages. 5.5" x 8.5"
