(4) YA Ten teens attending a wilderness camp for delinquents must complete a survival exercise. To pass time, each participant (à la Chaucer's Canterbury Tales) tells a self-revealing story, most involving betrayal, bullying, assault, and misunderstood quests for justice. The embedded tales--each by a different YA author, including compiler Hutchinson--range from bland to disturbing to thought-provoking, leading to an uneven collection.
