I've never read any of the nurse books, but I couldn't resist this lovely hardback copy, on sale for 50 cents at a Park Slope stoop sale.
Update: a fun read, especially at the start of summer. Can I weave baskets at Camp Blue Water, too? Cherry has VERY clean hands. In the same way that I never felt compelled to read more than a handful of Nancy Drews and Trixie Beldens, I don't think I'm going to read the entire Cherry oeuvre. But, Wendy, I will keep my eyes out for the Sue Bartons that you men
This Cherry Ames is pretty much middle of the road. I think the main reason I'm frustrated is that after all her experience, you'd think she'd be moving into more responsible positions. Of course, then there wouldn't be as much time for solving mysteries. Speaking of which, at least Cherry was more sensible about accepting help in this one.
I didn't read the 2007 version; I read the version that looked really old in the 1970's & seemed to take place around the 1930's or 40's.
I read this book to prepare me for my possible future stint as Camp Wapsie Nurse.

A solid, yet run-of-the-mill entry in the Cherry Ames series.
Another favourite from my childhood / growing up years.
