    1. “Hell Camp” is a revisit of childhood and adolescence, a time when parents both seem crazy and offer a pillar of support. Except in Niki Smart’s case – you see, she had a mother who provided Niki with an insane, mad childhood and substituted a mother’s support with a maternal narcissist who manipulated her children, argued with them (and their friends, their teachers, EVERYONE…), slept with the neighbour (and, well, EVERYONE…) abandoned her children for months on end, and ultimatel [...]

    2. I've been putting off this review for some time now. The largest difficulty has been this: I genuinely feel that Niki Smart's life is worthy of interest and sympathy. The journey that she's taken--through apartheid, sexual abuse, alcoholism, saddled with a mentally unstable mother and a desperate need for fame--and the fact that she's arrived safely on the other side is nothing short of remarkable. However, I not only didn't enjoy this read, I actively disliked the experience. Had I not received [...]

    3. Great story. Hell Camp reads like a journal really, but that's part of its charm. It seems authentic. Good one to give your selfish, entitled teenage daughter :)

    4. Received a copy of Hell Camp by Niki Smart through the First Reads Giveaway program in exchange for an honest review "I was reckless to the point of stupidity. I mean, I climbed in cars with strangers, I climbed on the back of motorbikes with strangerswell basically, I climbed on strangers. I was drunk and I didn't care. I sought out constant adventure, anything out of the ordinary, anything to occupy my mind. Boredom was equivalent to death.Keep me stimulated, keep me busy, busy, busy, so I don [...]

    5. This is one of the most poignant, moving, and heartbreaking memoirs I have read, and believe me,over the years I have read many. For those of you who loved Mary Karr's the Liar's Club, you willrelish Niki Smart's spell-binding Hell Camp. With Hell Camp, we have the arrival of a fresh, vibrantwriter. I can't wait to read her next book.
