This is sort of a placeholder book. It's as well-written as the other Alice books, but it takes place largely at camp. The camp story is fun, but when Alice is in camp, she's not at home, and we don't get to see her interact with the her wonderful older brother Lester, and with her father - and those are some of my favorite interactions and relationships in the books.

It felt like an in-between book in a lot of ways. Not bad, but not as strong a story as some of the other books in the Alice series.
