BSG #87: Pavlov’s Demons / Camp Damascus

The whole Squad is back together and on a hunt for CAMP of any sort in our discussion of Chuck Tingle’s Camp Damascus. Put a pink bag over your head and join us as we talk about the novel’s plot and pacing, YA vs. adult fiction, religious trauma, autism, and of course, CAMP. Then we catch up with what’s on the (still alive, we swear) Book Squad Blog. Join us for what will probably be a Hatepisode as we discuss Riley Sager’s The Only One Left with returning guest Jayce on 12/12. Then read along with us for our next Bookpisode on Looking Glass Sound by Catriona Ward on 12/26! Don’t forget to leave us a rating and review, and if you’re feeling extra generous, support us on Patreon at
