No Good Deed by Goldy Moldavsky --- Teen Book Review


Posted on behalf of NC TAG Member Catherine L. 

To feed all the starving children in the world - it’s all Gregor Maravilla ever wanted to do. When he is selected to be part of Camp Save the World, a prestigious summer program for young activists from all over the country, he gets the chance to do just that. The camp is great - after all, what could possibly be wrong with  a camp where young adults champion for their cause? Nothing … right? When a prize is thrown into the mix, there is nothing these humanitarians wouldn’t do to make their campaign stand out. Now, Gregor will truly see just how good he and his fellow good-doers are … at sabotage.


No Good Deed by Goldy Moldavsky is, for the lack of better words, a parody novel. The plot utterly unique and unexpected. The characters witty and hilarious. Although it’s not realistic and therefore not particularly relatable, the humour and fun definitely make up for it. Overall, this novel is truly a wild ride. This is Goldy Moldavsky's second young adult novel; her first being Kill the Boy Band, which was published in 2016. 


I give this novel a 3 out of 5 stars and would recommend it to readers looking for a lighthearted and humorous read.


This book is appropriate for ages 13 and up.
