"Charming and humorous… the novel successfully ends the series, while leaving open the possibility of further adventures. The controversial subject matter may make some readers uncomfortable, but for those interested in a sexual adventure told from a gay perspective, this is a wonderful look at boys transitioning between childhood and adulthood."

Synopsis

Troop Nine Victorious Six first places and the relay! Ten Honor Ribbons Best troop for the fourth year. • Julian makes a new lifelong friend. • Danny’s short water polo career ends well; on Friday he is discovered by Tony—instant electricity. • Tom and Nick help Freddy’s Shooting Gallery end with a special treat. • Friday is graduation. Tom organizes the last day competitions. Julian presents his oversize portraits to Leonard and Sarge. • Saturday: morning is the relay races, afternoon the awards, packing up to leave. During the last camp assembly, Leonard gets a special lesson in art appreciation from Geoff. The long ride home is busy... especially the hour after dark. • Julian’s goal for camp remains unachieved—or does it? What are the prospects for the future? What has happened at home? • There is secret night action as well. On Thursday, Geoff appears at Mark’s cabin door just before midnight. On Friday, Tony arrives at Danny’s tent after lights out.
 

About Eldot

Eldot, a simple cipher, is a nom de plume. Eldot has lived in the Pacific Northwest most of his life. Now retired, he thrives on the illusion that he is still in his thirties. When he isn't writing he takes walks, gardens, and helps family and friends with sundry outdoor projects. He listens to classical music all the time. the novel, regrettably, is not autobiographical. It became important to be active in the campaign to end social intolerance and bullying. He responded to the urging of friends and relatives to write. It was fun as well as rewarding. the first book was so full it had to be divided into parts; the Champions is the final and the longest in the five part series. You can find out more about Eldot and his books at his publisher's website, diphra.com
