Overview

What would happen if The Breakfast Club had to walk Spain's famed Camino de Santiago pilgrimage instead of serving Saturday detention?
After getting in trouble with the law, a group of wayward teens are given an ultimatum: serve time in juvenile detention for their crimes or walk the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage across Spain over the summer holidays with a pair of court-appointed counselors. Although they come from diverse backgrounds, the unlikely friends try to make the best of their situation. The pilgrims grow closer on their journey, but they may not make it to their destination—the Cathedral in Santiago. If they do, will they each find what they're looking for, and will their newfound friendships endure?

Reviews

"Funny and poignant, this story of friendship and falling in love will remind you that our paths are not defined by our pasts, but the choices we make each day." —Danika Stone, Author of All the Feels, Internet Famous, and Switchback

"I laughed, I cried, I couldn't put it down." —Kip Wilson, YA author of White Rose

"Often hilarious and always heartfelt, The Camino Club is an uplifting story about six mismatched teens on the journey of a lifetime, who learn that the only way to get over the past and headed for the future is to live in the moment." —Tom Ryan, author of Keep This to Yourself and I Hope You're Listening 

"Funny and poignant, this story of friendship and falling in love will remind you that our paths are not defined by our pasts, but the choices we make each day." —Danika Stone, author of All the Feels, Internet Famous, and Switchback

"A beautiful book filled with heart. The Camino Club takes readers on a pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago in Spain with six delinquent teens. Not only do they find themselves along the way, but they also discover they're all worthy of love. I laughed, I cried, I couldn't put it down." —Kip Wilson, YA author of White Rode

"The story introduces the Camino de Santiago to some while offering landmarks to those familiar with the pilgrimage. The format of short chapters and journal entries will appeal to reluctant readers. VERDICT: Young adult readers will enjoy this journey and will find themselves in at least one of the characters." —Betsy Davison, School Library Journal

"The evocative, lush writing inspires vivid imagery of the Camino de Santiago and will almost make readers wish they had a crime to erase with a pilgrimage of their own." —Alaina Leary, Booklist
