The perfect blend of horror and humor, I Have a Bad Feeling About This is a laugh-out-loud wilderness comedy about an ultimate survival camp that takes a deadly turn...

Wilderness Survival Tip #1

Drinking your own sweat will not save your life. Somebody might have told you that, but they were trying to find out if you'd really do it.

Wilderness Survival Tip #2

In case of an avalanche, don't despair. You're doomed, but that's a wicked cool death.

Wilderness Survival Tip #3

If you're relying on this book for actual survival tips, you're dead already.

Henry Lambert would rather play video games than spend time in the great outdoors—but that doesn't make him a wuss. Skinny nerd? Fine. But wuss is a little harsh. Sadly, his dad doesn't agree. Which is why Henry is being shipped off to Strongwoods Survival Camp.

Strongwoods isn't exactly as advertised. It looks like the victim of a zombie apocalypse, the "camp director" is a psycho drill sergeant, and Henry's sure he saw a sign written in blood...

Perfect for those looking for:

  • Survival books for adults as well as young adults
  • Hilarious comedy books for boys
  • Teen books for boys ages 13-16

About the Author

JEFF STRAND lives in Tampa, Florida, and doesn’t believe in voodoo. But he still thinks you should carry a doll around, go up to people you don’t like, and chuckle while you jab it with pins, just to make them squirm. Poke around his gleefully macabre website at www.JeffStrand.com.

Praise For…

"Humor and hijinks are the name of the survival game

The short chapters, writing style, and humor make this a good choice for reluctant readers. Give this one to fans of the Home Alone movies and readers who love caper stories." — School Library Journal

"It’s… funny, and the gags turn in unexpected directions and would do Saturday Night Live skits proud." — Kirkus Reviews

"In this gleefully... wickedly funny adventure, Strand balances action with laugh-out-loud humor, making this a thoroughly entertaining not-quite-coming-of-age tale... Strand balances action with laugh-out-loud humor, making this a thoroughly entertaining not-quite-coming-of-age tale." — Publishers Weekly

"Strand couples a rapid patter of well tuned
gags and teen banter to a plot marked by sudden violence and intervals of intense terror. It’s humor
of a knee-slapping, yet decidedly edgy kind." — Booklist

"Teen boys will love the humor of this book. It is a fun, quick read that teens will pass on to each other." — VOYA Magazine

"Rip-roaring funny and a delight for any teen reader, this book will be breezed through with its non-stop action and hilarious content. Any kid is going to eat it up like the candy hidden under their bed and scream for more." — Hook of a Book

"I really needed a book like this. Something fun, enjoyable and entertaining. To laugh all the way through a book is a great accomplishment and I truly have to commend the author for his ability to carry that speed and endurance." — My Never Ending List

" Grand and company arrive right in the middle of Strongwood’s Survival Games, and the stage is set for a bizarre, hilarious melding of LORD OF THE FLIES, SURVIVOR, THE HUNGER GAMES, and DIARY OF A WIMPY KID." — Horror World
