The Troop - Nick Cutter

I'm actually loving the writing in this thus far. My concern is that I already see shades of Lord of the Flies in here, and I'm wondering if it might be a little too derivative of its inspirations. Still too soon to tell, but the opening with "Starvin' Marvin" and getting to know the leader and Scouts and such is holding my attention. Let's see where it goes.
