Boot Camp, by Todd Strasser

A wretched, expoitative, voyeuristic and violent YA book.

Garrett is sent to Lake Harmony, a private juvenile delinquent camp, where he endures many violent humiliations and brainwashing etc etc.

Not my cup of tea in the least. And, if I must say so, kind of ludicrous. Before anyone wants to jump down my throat and point me to the reference and resource list at the end of the book, yeah, I know these things do happen. I just thought this was a rotten book, and it read as implausible, which is my least favorite thing of all in what purports to be 'realistic fiction'.
