Dead Weight: Murder at Camp Bloom Reviews

    Apr 09, 2018

    Reading Dead Weight reminds me of Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys because of the mystery and sleuthing theme. The story of the four teenagers in the Camp Bloom, a camp for those who have weight issues, is quite interesting to read and the "accidental" bond between these teens will ...

    Imagine Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys put on some weight and get sent to fat camp. Four campers uncover a murder and determine they can't trust any of the counselors. Don't worry the fat camp junior detectives are on the case. A fun, all ages mystery that is inclusive and LGBTQ+. Maybe...

    4 stars. Thank you so much, Netgalley, for sending me an ecopy of this graphic novel for review! I went into this wary, because I was worried about the representation, but I'm excited to say that everything was handled pretty well! We have a bunch of fat characters, a few queer ...

    I received a copy from Oni Press through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Four teenagers are dropped off at Camp Bloom, a weight-loss camp, and are hesitant for different reasons. One kid is torn up about being separated from technology while another is irritated that her...

    This review is also posted in my blog : https://onewordtoomuch.wordpress.com/... Thank you to Net Galley for a free copy of this book in trade for an honest review. Well, this is sure is different from the other graphic novel I?ve ever read. It?s funny, mysterious, and makes...

    This review also available on THE LITERARY HUNTRESS I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review This graphic novel was such a pleasant surprise! I expected a lot of fun based on the premise, but I didn?t expect to have this much fun, even loving it this...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley This was a really fun little murder mystery with some great characters. I was somewhat worried about how they would handle the whole 'fat camp' thing, but I think that overall it was a really great setting and showed that there are ...

    I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review. OMG, OMG, OMG, this was even better than I had hoped/dreamed it would be. I had heard about this one through twitter earlier, and I was already hyped. And then I spotted it on Netgalley. Meet Jesse, Noah, Tony...

    Dead Weight is a unique, well-written and diverse graphic novel with a great mystery and awesome characters. Camp Bloom is a weight-loss camp for teens in the Oregon wilderness. One night, Noah and Jesse witness the murder of a beloved counsellor by a masked murderer. However, the ...

    I laughed my way through this whole book. Set at a summer fat camp, a group of teens play detective while trying to solve the mystery of who murdered one of the camp counselors. The loved the four main characters the most, but some of the background characters where amusing as well. My...

    Dawn of a New Day? This is a teenage, sleuth-squad, summer camp, mystery adventure. Just like they've been writing since Pee-Wee Harris was a Boy Scout in 1922. But, I'm pretty sure I don't remember Pee-Wee sharing adventures with Black, Latino, and gay/lesbian companions. As I say,...

    The characters in this graphic novel were well developed given the short length. The mystery aspect played out nicely moving the plot along at a good pace. Fans of the cozy mystery genre would enjoy this. The art style was clear and beautifully done. So much diversity in this story! As...

    This is a cute enough murder mystery, set at a Fat Camp. The kids are diverse, which is a plus, plus there is LGBTQ representation included. And, as with any good mystery, there are lots of red herrings thrown in, to make you think you have figured out the mystery, including one that m...

    As a fat kid from Oregon I knew I had to read this! While I didn't love it, it was fun and I did enjoy it - after all I always love a good murder mystery. The story wasn't easy to guess - but I felt like it was lacking something. Maybe I wanted more Oregon rep in the book - otherwise w...

    As the title suggests, a murder takes place at a fat camp for kids. As always, the first part is taken up with character introductions, though some of them aren?t all that well done. I thought Gwen would be my early favorite, despite the fact I usually don?t like nurses, but she t...

       Thanks to Oni Press and NetGalley for my free copy!  My review of Dead Weight, Murder at Camp Bloom By Terry Blas, Molly Muldoon and Matthew Seely.     Murder at fat camp! We follow teens, Jesse, Noah, Kate and Tony around for what seem's too short amount of time. Who ...

    I was looking for something fun to read and I chose this graphic novel because I was intrigued by the drawings and the title. As I expected this comic book is actually fun to read thanks to its dose of black humor (we?re talking about murder here). Obviously, the thing I appreciated ...

    Dead Weight: Murder at Camp Bloom is a fun (as fun as murder can be) romp through a murder mystery with teens at the helm of solving it. The story takes place at Camp Bloom, a weight loss camp for teens. Some of the campers know each other and are familiar with the place, but others ar...

    What a great start to, what I hope becomes, a great series. The group of friends in here is the perfect blend of misfits. The authors do a great job of providing enough detail so that you understand enough of the character to build a version in your mind that will stick with you after ...

    ***I received a free copy of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.*** For fans of Lumberjanes and Nimona comes this standalone comic about a diverse group of ?fat camp? attendees who witness a murder, only to have the body disappear and a faked note saying the counselor had...

    Wasn?t quite sure what I was expecting from this book. At first I thought this was geared toward a younger audience, but after the first couple pages, I realized this was more of a teen / adult comic. This was a little bit of a blend of Scooby Doo plus Nancy Drew goes to fat camp. ...

    Dead Weight is a mystery as much as a graphic novel. A murderer is at fat camp. Four campers team up to solve a murder when they stumble on a counselor's body. I love the art in this graphic novel. The diverse group of campers are drawn so well that each personality comes alive with th...

    *thank you to Netgalley and Oni Press for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review* 4 stars. This was better than I had expected. But saying that Im not really sure what I was expecting, but it was a really enjoyable middle grade read. I liked the artwork. It was kind...

    A murder mystery set in a summer fat camp ? that?s all I needed to know. The illustrations in this comic are gorgeous and beautifully styled. Though the story takes place in a fat camp, it?s not trying to preach or harp on about the psychology and health issues surrounding obesi...

    What it is- This comic book style story for middle grade readers follows some children at a fat camp as they try to solve a mystery. What I expected - Simple characters and a simple story because it is a middle grade comic book. What I got- wowza. I'm impressed. This book kept m...

    A great little comic about crime and friendship. I loved how the characters all came together and solved the mystery. The progression of the story was very well planed out and i liked how the drama and the tension built up over the volumes. The characters were all fully developed and p...

    This was pretty cute and good fun. The characters were distinctive and interesting - props to both the writers and artist for that, as often when I read graphic novels I find the characters hard to distinguish. I won't remember this in a month, but I did enjoy it. ...

    The characters in this graphic novel were well developed given the short length. The mystery aspect played out nicely moving the plot along at a good pace. Fans of the cozy mystery genre would enjoy this. The art style was clear and beautifully done. So much diversity in this story! As...

    This is a cute enough murder mystery, set at a Fat Camp. The kids are diverse, which is a plus, plus there is LGBTQ representation included. And, as with any good mystery, there are lots of red herrings thrown in, to make you think you have figured out the mystery, including one that m...

    As a fat kid from Oregon I knew I had to read this! While I didn't love it, it was fun and I did enjoy it - after all I always love a good murder mystery. The story wasn't easy to guess - but I felt like it was lacking something. Maybe I wanted more Oregon rep in the book - otherwise w...

    As the title suggests, a murder takes place at a fat camp for kids. As always, the first part is taken up with character introductions, though some of them aren?t all that well done. I thought Gwen would be my early favorite, despite the fact I usually don?t like nurses, but she t...

       Thanks to Oni Press and NetGalley for my free copy!  My review of Dead Weight, Murder at Camp Bloom By Terry Blas, Molly Muldoon and Matthew Seely.     Murder at fat camp! We follow teens, Jesse, Noah, Kate and Tony around for what seem's too short amount of time. Who ...

    I was looking for something fun to read and I chose this graphic novel because I was intrigued by the drawings and the title. As I expected this comic book is actually fun to read thanks to its dose of black humor (we?re talking about murder here). Obviously, the thing I appreciated ...

    Dead Weight: Murder at Camp Bloom is a fun (as fun as murder can be) romp through a murder mystery with teens at the helm of solving it. The story takes place at Camp Bloom, a weight loss camp for teens. Some of the campers know each other and are familiar with the place, but others ar...

    What a great start to, what I hope becomes, a great series. The group of friends in here is the perfect blend of misfits. The authors do a great job of providing enough detail so that you understand enough of the character to build a version in your mind that will stick with you after ...

    ***I received a free copy of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.*** For fans of Lumberjanes and Nimona comes this standalone comic about a diverse group of ?fat camp? attendees who witness a murder, only to have the body disappear and a faked note saying the counselor had...

    Wasn?t quite sure what I was expecting from this book. At first I thought this was geared toward a younger audience, but after the first couple pages, I realized this was more of a teen / adult comic. This was a little bit of a blend of Scooby Doo plus Nancy Drew goes to fat camp. ...

    Dead Weight is a mystery as much as a graphic novel. A murderer is at fat camp. Four campers team up to solve a murder when they stumble on a counselor's body. I love the art in this graphic novel. The diverse group of campers are drawn so well that each personality comes alive with th...

    *thank you to Netgalley and Oni Press for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review* 4 stars. This was better than I had expected. But saying that Im not really sure what I was expecting, but it was a really enjoyable middle grade read. I liked the artwork. It was kind...

    A murder mystery set in a summer fat camp ? that?s all I needed to know. The illustrations in this comic are gorgeous and beautifully styled. Though the story takes place in a fat camp, it?s not trying to preach or harp on about the psychology and health issues surrounding obesi...

    What it is- This comic book style story for middle grade readers follows some children at a fat camp as they try to solve a mystery. What I expected - Simple characters and a simple story because it is a middle grade comic book. What I got- wowza. I'm impressed. This book kept m...

    A great little comic about crime and friendship. I loved how the characters all came together and solved the mystery. The progression of the story was very well planed out and i liked how the drama and the tension built up over the volumes. The characters were all fully developed and p...

    This was pretty cute and good fun. The characters were distinctive and interesting - props to both the writers and artist for that, as often when I read graphic novels I find the characters hard to distinguish. I won't remember this in a month, but I did enjoy it. ...

    I received an e-arc from Netgalley and ONI Press for an honest review. Look out Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, there's a new crime club in town! As soon as I saw that this was about a murder and summer camp, I had to read it. It was a fun, fast read with a cast of diverse characters, c...

    8th grade and up: misses the mark ...

    What a great start to, what I hope becomes, a great series. The group of friends in here is the perfect blend of misfits. The authors do a great job of providing enough detail so that you understand enough of the character to build a version in your mind that will stick with you after ...

    Wasn?t quite sure what I was expecting from this book. At first I thought this was geared toward a younger audience, but after the first couple pages, I realized this was more of a teen / adult comic. This was a little bit of a blend of Scooby Doo plus Nancy Drew goes to fat camp. ...

    Dead Weight is a mystery as much as a graphic novel. A murderer is at fat camp. Four campers team up to solve a murder when they stumble on a counselor's body. I love the art in this graphic novel. The diverse group of campers are drawn so well that each personality comes alive with th...

    *thank you to Netgalley and Oni Press for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review* 4 stars. This was better than I had expected. But saying that Im not really sure what I was expecting, but it was a really enjoyable middle grade read. I liked the artwork. It was kind...

    A murder mystery set in a summer fat camp ? that?s all I needed to know. The illustrations in this comic are gorgeous and beautifully styled. Though the story takes place in a fat camp, it?s not trying to preach or harp on about the psychology and health issues surrounding obesi...

    What it is- This comic book style story for middle grade readers follows some children at a fat camp as they try to solve a mystery. What I expected - Simple characters and a simple story because it is a middle grade comic book. What I got- wowza. I'm impressed. This book kept m...

    A great little comic about crime and friendship. I loved how the characters all came together and solved the mystery. The progression of the story was very well planed out and i liked how the drama and the tension built up over the volumes. The characters were all fully developed and p...

    This was pretty cute and good fun. The characters were distinctive and interesting - props to both the writers and artist for that, as often when I read graphic novels I find the characters hard to distinguish. I won't remember this in a month, but I did enjoy it. ...

    I received an e-arc from Netgalley and ONI Press for an honest review. Look out Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, there's a new crime club in town! As soon as I saw that this was about a murder and summer camp, I had to read it. It was a fun, fast read with a cast of diverse characters, c...

    Imagine Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys put on some weight and get sent to fat camp. Four campers uncover a murder and determine they can't trust any of the counselors. Don't worry the fat camp junior detectives are on the case. A fun, all ages mystery that is inclusive and LGBTQ+. Maybe...

    Dawn of a New Day? This is a teenage, sleuth-squad, summer camp, mystery adventure. Just like they've been writing since Pee-Wee Harris was a Boy Scout in 1922. But, I'm pretty sure I don't remember Pee-Wee sharing adventures with Black, Latino, and gay/lesbian companions. As I say,...

    The characters in this graphic novel were well developed given the short length. The mystery aspect played out nicely moving the plot along at a good pace. Fans of the cozy mystery genre would enjoy this. The art style was clear and beautifully done. So much diversity in this story! As...

    This is a cute enough murder mystery, set at a Fat Camp. The kids are diverse, which is a plus, plus there is LGBTQ representation included. And, as with any good mystery, there are lots of red herrings thrown in, to make you think you have figured out the mystery, including one that m...

    As a fat kid from Oregon I knew I had to read this! While I didn't love it, it was fun and I did enjoy it - after all I always love a good murder mystery. The story wasn't easy to guess - but I felt like it was lacking something. Maybe I wanted more Oregon rep in the book - otherwise w...

    As the title suggests, a murder takes place at a fat camp for kids. As always, the first part is taken up with character introductions, though some of them aren?t all that well done. I thought Gwen would be my early favorite, despite the fact I usually don?t like nurses, but she t...

    I was looking for something fun to read and I chose this graphic novel because I was intrigued by the drawings and the title. As I expected this comic book is actually fun to read thanks to its dose of black humor (we?re talking about murder here). Obviously, the thing I appreciated ...

    Dead Weight: Murder at Camp Bloom is a fun (as fun as murder can be) romp through a murder mystery with teens at the helm of solving it. The story takes place at Camp Bloom, a weight loss camp for teens. Some of the campers know each other and are familiar with the place, but others ar...

    What a great start to, what I hope becomes, a great series. The group of friends in here is the perfect blend of misfits. The authors do a great job of providing enough detail so that you understand enough of the character to build a version in your mind that will stick with you after ...

    Wasn?t quite sure what I was expecting from this book. At first I thought this was geared toward a younger audience, but after the first couple pages, I realized this was more of a teen / adult comic. This was a little bit of a blend of Scooby Doo plus Nancy Drew goes to fat camp. ...

    Dead Weight is a mystery as much as a graphic novel. A murderer is at fat camp. Four campers team up to solve a murder when they stumble on a counselor's body. I love the art in this graphic novel. The diverse group of campers are drawn so well that each personality comes alive with th...

    Imagine Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys put on some weight and get sent to fat camp. Four campers uncover a murder and determine they can't trust any of the counselors. Don't worry the fat camp junior detectives are on the case. A fun, all ages mystery that is inclusive and LGBTQ+. Maybe...

    A murder mystery set in a summer fat camp ? that?s all I needed to know. The illustrations in this comic are gorgeous and beautifully styled. Though the story takes place in a fat camp, it?s not trying to preach or harp on about the psychology and health issues surrounding obesi...
