Boot Camp by Todd Strasser
Garrett's parents believe his behavior is out of control because he is dating an older woman. Although his parents don't spend any time with Garrett, they are embarrassed and decide to have him kidnapped and sent to a boot camp where he will learn discipline. But conditions at the camp are horrible and the teens who have been sent there are forced to endure torture and humiliation on a daily basis. The only ones who are not miserable are the ones who have finally broken and don't question their treatment. Garrett is recruited by two other inmates who have a plan for escape but time is running short before the weather will make it impossible for them to get away.
