#BookReview: Away Games (Camp Average #3) by @cthomasbattle

Synopsis: In the final book of the series, this summer is definitely not average

It’s another summer at Camp Avalon―also known as Camp Average to its campers―only this year, things are anything but normal. Mack and Andre are spending the summer at rival Camp Killington, where the competitive campers seem intent on making them suffer.

Meanwhile, at Camp Average, Miles is trying to keep the peace―which is not easy, due to obnoxious newcomer Garth and his pranks. On top of that, Miles has another impossible task on his plate: getting Mack and Andre back on home turf.

Things come to a head when Mack and Andre are forced apart, and Cassie challenges Garth to a do-or-die ball hockey showdown. Will the Camp Average crew find their way back together and come out on top? In this third and final addition to the series, the campers rally to support each other and discover once more how teamwork and cooperation win.


Rating: 5 Stars
My Review:  We have had the opportunity to read all of these books in this series and I have to say that I loved all of them.  This was a wonderful story with sports and fun and diverse characters.  I took my copy to school with me and donated it to my class.  It was super fun! 


"The narrative shines when depicting the sports alchemy that transforms diverse young players of varying athletic interests and abilities into a whole greater than the sum of its parts. An exuberant celebration of playing as a team." ― Kirkus Reviews

"The campers at Camp Average aren’t known for their sports skills, but this group of underdogs work together to try to win." ― School Library Journal

"Author Battle has an amazing cast of characters whose interactions are believable in an uplifting, humorous tale ... He has also fashioned a very strong piece of sport fiction jumping seamlessly from the action on the ball-hockey court to baseball drills to croquet." ― Canadian Review of Materials
