Narrator Michael Crouch sets exactly the right tone in this satirical take on social justice and teen angst. All Gregor Maravilla wants from Camp Save the World is to meet the legendary Robert Drill and learn how to make an impact through activism. As nonsensical challenges and dangerous competitions mount, Crouch balances the tone of the first-person narration between sardonic and hopeful, mirroring Gregor's increasing confusion at the chaos around him. The summer camp setting means that Crouch has an array of secondary characters to distinguish individually by tone and accent. One standout is teen celebrity Ashley Woodstone's perfect blend of enthusiastic absurdism and genuine friendliness. Goldy Moldavsky's story requires a total suspension of disbelief, and Michael Crouch's performance makes that a pleasure. N.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
