The Goats by Brock Cole 192 pages
I didn't like the book, bulling is the main topic.
the victims are resourceful, but still bullied into a possibly life threatening situation. The number of things that could have happened is to scary to think about. I don't recommend the book unless a kind and understanding person is available to talk with the young person reading it.

Powerful story of two kid's escape and survival all to avoid cruelty of peers.

The boy and the girl are stripped and marooned on a small island for the night. They are the "goats". The kids at camp think it is a great joke; it's an old tradition. No harm is intended, but the goats don't see it that way. They want to disappear. To disappear completely. And they do much to everyone's surprise.

This is a wonderful and compelling story about the social classes of everyday life that I believe everyone can enjoy at any age. The plot presents an interesting concept of social and physical survival. Their journey of self-discovery makes a fascinating read, with dark social undertones. The most exceptional part of Cole's story is not how they survive physically, but how they survive mentally and emotionally. Oddly, while the adventures of the two young teenagers are not truly realistic, the entire book is completely believable. I think this would be a great book for young adults to read and discuss in school.
