Please join us at The Book Cellar to celebrate Robin Carnilius' new teen graphic novel, Camp Cutlery!
About Camp Cutlery: Peanut (pronouns: they, them, theirs) is an outspoken transgender rebel with a cause. When getting revenge on a bully causes the school to explode, Peanut is sentenced to a youth correctional facility, Camp Cutlery. Here, girls must wear skirts, boys must wear pants, and there is no such thing as being trans. Peanut’s release date is in three months. All they have to due to survive is hide their gender by any means necessary and keep their mouth shut about the systemic abuse and injustices the cadets face. Piece of cake, right? All of that is small potatoes to what’s really going on at Camp Cutlery. If everything has a price, what will Peanut sacrifice in their search for the truth… and freedom? Join Peanut, in this whimsical tale of juvenile crime, justice - and talking food.
