Surprised me. I enjoyed it. There is of course this deeply personal reaction as my summers were always this separate thing from the school year. Even if it wasn't camp, they sort of existed outside of the school reality for me despite some of the same people playing prominently in them. So I sort of related to the feeling like this is your whole world; even if it is a short amount of time. The book was packed - first love, unrequited love, bullying, friendship, and seriously what the hell was up with Brynn?? I know there is more story there. In a way it reminds me of The boyfriend list where it is going to be sold as one thing, but it is really something else entirely. At its core it is about sisters, growing up, finding your own way, your own voice. All while you live in a cocoon of summer at camp.
