Read full description of the books I Want to Go Home!:I no longer recognize teen angst. It is so full of werewolves, it bears no resemblance to either being a teen or feeling angst. And so I reread I Want to Go Home because it's about the kind of things that caused ME angst -- namely, summer camp.
Sometimes I think the secret of YA fiction is to read "boy books." If this had been written for girls, it would be about how summer camp is so awful because Girl A has to be away from her boyfriend and Girl B wants this other boy to like her who's also at camp and Girl C is trying to lose 10 pounds and Girl D is mean until her terrible secret comes out and we learn she's really anorexic. And then it would wrap up with a romance, and special lessons about growing up, self acceptance, and eating disorders.
But since it was written for boys, it's about how summer camp is awful because people are ridiculous; and the smarter you are, the more ridiculous they seem; and it's funny and weird. Which book would you rather read?
