The thrilling sequel to Camp X, winner of the Silver Birch Award—

Soon the boys are offered the after-school job of delivering the camp's mail, and Canadian agents ask them to keep their eyes and ears open for possible escape plans. For, as the boys are told, it is a matter of loyalty to their homeland that the German prisoners must try to escape, even if it costs them their lives—and the lives of two boys in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Jack and George have barely recovered from their ordeal in Camp X when they are relocated to Bowmanville, Ontario , where their mother has been offered a clerking job in a prisoner of war camp holding the highest ranking German officers.

    Epic Kids World War 2 Story. This Canadian, Action, Historical Fiction sequel to Camp X will blow you away. Eric Walters does an excellent job using characters new, old and fact to put a marvelous non-fiction setting and cool 1943 ish world into his story. Using 50% real characters and setting Eric balances fact and fiction to motivate readers to flip to the next page. The way Eric uses his storytelling skills you know that Jack and George are just pieces in a big game but they think they are only keeping their eyes and ears open. They think they are delivering mail but they are doing much more than that. They are aiding the Canadian army by spying on the Prisoners while aiding the Nazi’s as well. The boys will be tricked, befriended, betrayed and well naturally go on a big adventure from in and out of the Prisoner Of War camp: Camp 30. My favourite character is Little Bill because he is big and important and the boys are always like omg are we in trouble this dude is important. Overall Camp 30 the sequel to Camp X is an amazing book!
