Gregor Maravilla, a sixteen-year-old living in Brooklyn, is looking forward to going to Camp Save The World, a summer camp for teenage activists. His cause? To feed all the starving children. Gregor's very excited about being surrounded by like-minded teenagers who want to make a difference. However, some of these causes leave a bit to be desired. For example, the famous actress Ashley Woodstone's campaign: Eat Dirt. Then there's Boycott Camp, a boy who only came to this camp to protest it. Some of the people truly are like him. For example, perfect Win Cassidy, with his rival hunger campaign, and Poe, a beautiful girl who thinks a lot like Gregor. And who can forget I Like Paint, the biggest mystery at camp? No one know why he's here. No one's knows who he is. Camp Save The World can only hope to solve the mystery before summer's over. Of course, even with fun, romance, and wacky people, it wouldn't be summer camp without competition. So when the "contest" begins, it's only natural that sabotage starts with it. This book was a light read, with lots of humor and sharp plot twists. I never knew what was coming next, and that was perhaps for the best. It left me guessing, and I couldn't put it down. The characters were well fleshed out, and the idea behind this book was sound. I think this is a good book to read on a whim. Don't look for any deep messages about the universe, because although you may find them in Ashley Woodstone's wacky wisdom, that is not what this book is for. I recommend this book for teenagers looking for a quick, funny read. Overall, No Good Deed was a sweet and funny read, complete with characters of great depth and an intriguing storyline.
