From the Carnegie Medal 2020 winning author of Lark comes The Donut Diaries.
Dermot Milligan loves donuts. His nickname at school is Donut. But he knows he needs to lose some weight, so now he's made a promise to stop eating them. And to make sure he keeps that promise, his mum is sending him to the dreaded Camp Fatso during the summer holidays.
When he arrives, Dermot realises the camp is even more horrible than he had imagined. Fed on a diet of gruel and carrots under the strict control of evil Boss Skinner and his paintball-gun-yielding guards, Dermot and his friends are desperate to escape. So together, they hatch a cunning plan . . .
This is Book 3 in the The Donut Diaries Series. See all The Donut Diaries books here.
