A Softer World


“The violence against kids is truly cringe-worthy and horrifying, though I was cheering a bit when a few of the counselors met their ends. What really kept me reading were his mother’s letters to Martin at summer camp. They’re full of weird, paranormal imagery, and they describe Toronto as if it’s a cross between a spooky Twilight Zone episode and horror manga. It’s great stuff, from the ghosts who call her room to the details about how she’s building an exploding eyeball for the film she’s working on, and it’s an odd, loving, and emotionally affecting counterpoint to the horrible reality of camp.”
