Pete and I stared at each other. Two girls camping on our island?
Pete and Scott are horrified when they find Sunny and Jill camping with Jill's aunt on Turtle Island, the same "deserted" wilderness where Pete and Scott planned to have a few death-defying adventures. Alone. Every time the boys mess up, Sonny and Jill are there, taking the picture. This is war -- boys against girls!
With the help of an eccentric recluse who lives on the island, the boys plan one final battle -- a wacky contest of wit, skill, and revenge -- to determine the champions of Turtle Island!

Gery Greer and Bob Ruddick are the authors of many children's books including Jason and the Escape from Bat Planet and This Island Isn't Big Enough for the Four of Us!From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-8 Scott and Pete have long anticipated their week together on uninhabited Turtle Island; but their plans develop some crimps when Scott's uncle, for whose company they are field-testing a tent, gives them the cutesy Hansel and Gretel model. Worse, their ``deserted'' island turns out to be inhabited by two girls, who are always there to jeer when the boys make fools of themselves (which is often); by their aunt, a wildlife photographer; and by Cornelius, a writer who lives in a tree house . The plot, which revolves around one-upmanship between the boys and the girls, is mostly silly: the boys attack the girls' tent pretending to be vampire wolverines, but the girls are on to them and get the upper hand; the island's males face off against the females to see who can complete a task first, and both teams resort to trickery; the boys trick the girls into believing that there's a big reward for their befriending two turtles who are reputed to be former pets of a rich woman, etc. However some of the dialogue is amusing, and the characters are individuals. This fast-moving story should provide some laughs even for reluctant readers. Susan F. Marcus, Pollard Middle School, Needham, Mass.
