YA was hardcore in 1983 yo I bought my original copy of The Grounding of Group Six at Barnes and Noble in Boston when I was 10 – the huge one on Boylston that looked like a half melted White House and I’m not going to lie to you I bought it because of the coverIn fact before I even get into the book itself I’m going to rhapsodize about the cover THE COVER It’s one of those shady “serious” YA covers from the 80s and everyone in the group shot looks like they would CUT YOU Which is totally misleading because they’re all just total dorky sweethearts and also “rich kids” which is apparently shorthand for a bewildering lack of basic life skills so they’re kind of adorably helpless and then they learn to camp out because and this can’t really count as a spoiler since the basic premise of the book is plastered all over the jacket and the back cover although it would have been fucking mindblowing going into it blind Front cover – “Parent’s don’t kill their kids for just one reason They’re afraid to get caught” Back cover – “Nat had been hired by the Coldbrook Country School to make sure Group 6 never came out of the woods alive And their own parents were paying the bill”So you’ve got that tag line and then each kid looks like a sullen little bitch so you kind of WANT their parents to kill them Marigold looks like you’ve already bored her into a coma Ludi looks like you smell incredibly bad I mean she has to breathe through her mouth just to even look at you and Sarah has her “Knickerbocker please” face on; she’s clearly thinking about punching you in the neck And the boys None of them look like how I pictured them in the book Ludi too is way tougher looking on the cover than in my mind’s eye and poor Sully looks like he’s tweaking Of the lot of them Nat’s face is the most passive the least defined He’s sort of imaginary compared to the others like if an Elf escaped a Dungeonmaster’s Guide and got lost in a romance novel cover before he crept into the YA sectionAnyway despitebecause how misleading it is the cover is awesome for reals just look at it Marigold vaguely Cher like and obviously comfortable with her teenage sexuality Coke hunkered down and relaxed with his hand in a casual yet non sexual curl around his friend’s leg his friend who is totally organized and competent and a girl and Nat Nat looks like an ad for the Bon Jovi Hairclub for Men sporting this stylin’ mullet yet clean shaven even though in the book he has a blond goatee OMG and also He’s wearing supenders and an unbuttoned shirt over a smooth naked chest clearly something he picked up in the romance section So you already know what you’re getting into babies That’s right HEDONISMOh did you think it was a coincidence that the title practically says “group sex” Because it’s totally not I mean group sex doesn’t happen in the actual book but it’s easy to imagine that it happens at the end when they all uit school to move in together SO IMPLIED Also teachers fucking their students but it so totally doesn’t count because I don’t think Nat fucks Ludi until the book technically ends and she’s probably 17 by then maybe Plus he’s only 22 and fresh from college so yeah older but not 42 and not BuffyAngel oldBut maybe you’re totally fine with the age thing and you’re hung up on the fact that he you know was hired to ASSASSINATE her and that six weeks living rough in mortal peril manufactured some kind of Stockholm Syndrome Teen Romance Well sheesh come on he wasn’t actually her killer so it’s not like he menaced her into bed with him She actually has an entire school full of boys her own age and in her group to hook up with so She makes her decision with clear eyes Which you can totally do if you’re an old soul and also a little psychic and 16 years old and abandonedmurdered by your rich parents ahemBut the whole thing where he was hired to murder them Well he’s a gambler but a doof and a sweetheart and he was just desperate right And he didn’t really think he was being paid to actually kill them because he’s so simplehearted it doesn’t even occur to him that it’s not just some elaborate scared straight scheme And once he realizes that he was in fact supposed to actually murder them and also THIS JUST IN be murdered in turn he comes clean and tells them that their parents put them on a hitlist and then he turns them into this team of scrappy survivalists in an amazingly non creepy way kind of like Red Dawn but with way less communist hysteria He’s just a big goofy golden labrador of a man who likes to be outside and not to be kneecapped by the bookie he owes dough toIt’s just like extreme Outward BoundTo return to the theme so elegantly communicated by the cover this book is basically full of attempted child murder from the get go Also it was a lot cheaper to kill people in 1983 I mean rich people paid the actual administrators of the school who knows how much to put Xs in their kid’s eyes but DollarTimescom told me that the 3K the school would have paid Nat instead they wisely gave him 1500 and promised to send the rest later would only be like 699507 in 2012 That’s not even 1400 bucks a head Nat assassinatin’ rich kids on the cheap since 1983 Group discounts woo Get it Oh and I kind of love the guy Nat owes money to Arn The Barn Emfatico His uncle’s a gangster and so he’s obliged to collect the cash even though he likes Nat and he himself isn’t a huge fan of the old ultraviolence He’s a simple guy He likes nature and Pepsi and Milky Ways He has a girlfriend who loves motels “they kind of turned her on”The Grounding of Group Six is amazing for so many reasons the kids drink and fuck and bond the adults curse and drink and plot to kill them and somehow although the kids go through some crazy deep trauma they come out remarkably well adjusted and uite likely to become just the sort of pleasant relaxed and totally self actualized people who become casual billionaires because they all got to have super cathartic moments that helped them get over their respective mommy and daddy issues At 10 my takeaway from this book was the steadfast belief that no matter how horrifying my family I could make it throughTo recap1 Villainous parentsauthority figures2 Healthy teen sexuality with a focus on birth control3 One girl is psychic for no apparent reason without any real bearing on the plot4 Like everything 80s it features a training montageSeriously why are you not reading this book right now It’s so totally great What I’m saying here is you should read it You should read it SO HARDNote The current edition of this book sold on both in print and for Kindle appears to have been released by the author after getting the rights back from his publisher This means instead of the magnificent cover to which fully half of this post is in praise of you’ll instead get something he may or may not have created himself in Microsoft Paint The good news though is that almost the entire sale price of any copy sold will go to pay author’s mortgage — purchase it with pride

    This book seriously fucked me up as a kid I met the author when I was about 15 and told him so which seems to have delighted him A creepy inappropriately sexy all around mindfuck of a book AwesomeI really need to own a copy of this again

    This is the book I point to whenever people complain that today's YA books are OMG SO DARK AND EDGY This book about a group of kids whose parents sent them off to boarding school with the intent of having them murdered was written THIRTY years ago YA books have always had edge Ok not always but for than a generation I read this book at least fifty times when I was a teenager And I turned out ok right?

    You know it isn't just that parents want their kids to LOOK like names of cars like Jaguar Cutlass Wraith like that said Coke 'They like it if you ACT like one as wellThe Grounding of Group 6 by Julian F Thompson I did not love itI read this twiceonce in childhood and once recently I felt the same feeling both timesIt was a great premise But I could not get that involved in the story And this surprised me because with a premise like this it seemed destined to be a book I lovedBut after reading it as an adult it came back to me why I did not love it as a kid It had no tensionGrounding is supposed to be about a group of kids whose parents send them to a special school What the kids do not know is that their parents are sending them there to be murdered They are problem kids and their parents have had enough They are group six and their teacher is really an assassin Well it sounds twisted but very compelling But I could not keep my mind on it You know there is going to be romance right away It is practically shouted at you Everyone seems to be pairing up and the killer starts to have doubts about whether he wants to do away with the kids but the story is told in a way I cannot describe as other then distracting Its focus seems to be on romance and alot of survival in the woods I wanted it to be scarier dialogue driven and I wanted to know about the parents I mean whowhat kind of PEOPLE would do such a thing to their children?The adults are presented here but asfor lack of a better termgoofballs then anything else This did not seem to be a thriller in any way as it seemed like traditional YA with light thriller aspects to it and some romance thrown in but I would classify this as an adventure as for a good part of the book you learn alot about living and surviving in the woods and forests It was very different then how I had perceived it to be On the positive side there was also some biting wit which I appreciated but the story for me was not a page turnerI still would sort of recommend it What a gritty all around great concept I was hoping when I read it in adulthood that I'd like it better then I did as a kid I did not but maybe someone else will

    This book was published in 1983 when I was 13 yrs old I remember reading it and loving it It resurfaced at the library on the discard table and I snatched it up I was a little bit tentative about rereading and concerned I would be disappointed To my delight I was as entertained in my 40's as I was in my teens A great read a little dark and edgy Great plot and lots of twists and turns I highly suggest giving this a shot

    Holy shit I can't believe this book really exists I thought it was a figment of my childhood imagination

    I actually found this book disappointingThe basic plotline is simple five parents decide to have their kids killed for reasons that are honestly pretty skimpy The parents are pretty cold and I suppose that's part of why it's a horror but it still comes off as bizarre than anything else They're sent to Coldbrook Country Boarding School where as part of orientation everyone goes on a hike Unbeknownst to them their guide has been hired to kill themHonestly the parents' motivations are not a problem as such except that you get the same logic gap in other characters Nat the guide accepts the job without really thinking about it then decides not to kill them pretty easily as well The fact that he gets romantically involved with one of the girls as well adds to my general discomfort with him It's just pointless the character his motivations the whole thing No consistency no coherencyIt does have some nice touches the letters the kids write at the beginning explaining why they should be accepted to Coldbrook is nicely creepy but overall it was just kind of meh Not scary enough and senseless in the wrong way

    Wow What a strange surreal book Five teens hard edged cynical Marigold and Coke; gentler innocent Sully and Sara; and Ludi who has the Sight At first I felt sorry for poor Ludi with no match but then I remembered Nat the handsome very young teacher Everyone would have a mate after allI wish everyone hadn't paired off uite so uickly; I would have liked some about the Group bonding as a group sisterly and brotherlyThe main villain Doctor is a very campy madman who switches from speech to singing Frank Sinatra songs or old show tunes He was a little too muchin a good way though I thinkI would have liked to see the kids confront their parents I was very disappointed when that took place in a phone booth I couldn't hear through The horror of the premise was pretty well explored but the parents were pretty two dimensional I guess they were meant to be just plain evilBut these things aside this was an exciting very funny story of friends and lovers surviving together
