All the brilliance of the the first book in the series, Camp Rollings Hills, with new issues, new shenanigans and plenty of laughs. A wonderful story about dealing with friendship as people change and trying to find common ground with those friends. It is about solving problems and embracing who you are. There is heart, friendship and love wrapped up in a story that will capture your attention, as well as your kids. You will wish you went to camp or you will reminisce about your time at camp.

Middle school aged readers will enjoy this camp romp, 2nd in the Camp Rolling Hills series. This one stands alone once readers get the characters figured out, especially considering all the hilarious/unusual nicknames used. There are plenty of antics and pranks included to keep the action, and humor, moving. Ghost tales and settings are also included for those who like the goose-bump factor. This is a camp in the Catskills which caters to/attracts many children who are Jewish so there are numero ...more
Full review with teaching tools and author interview:

The crazy cast of characters are what really make this book. Oh, and the reminiscing of camp. Camp really is something that is hard to explain unless you go yourself, but Stacy Davidowitz does a great job bringing the reader into Camp Rolling Hills and all of its quirkiness. And to add to the quirkiness, the characters in the books are so much fun! They are quite the mix of personalities. From stereotyp

Camp Rolling Hills: Book Two: Crossing Over by [Davidowitz, Stacy]I was given this book by Abram kids in exchange for my honest review:

The first Camp Rolling Hills book was a huge success with me and this one, Crossing Over. is just as good.

Each of the characters in this book are well-rounded and Davidowitz does a great job writing each one. I could relate to the issues that each character faced. Once again I highly recommend this book whether a child has been to camp or not. It is a great book

"[In] my heart of hearts I always wanted to know what it would have been like to go to one of those 8 week summer camps. If you missed out on the whole summer camp experience, or if you want to relive it, these books will be just right."

I liked this book but it didn’t compare to the first one.

Recommends it for: Fans of the first Camp Rolling Hills book who aren't too picky
Maybe it's the adjustment for Davidowitz from adapting a musical to coming up with an original plot for the characters, but Crossing Over is probably the weakest installment in the Camp Rolling Hills series.

What I liked:
-Melman is one of my favorite characters from this series, and her parts were well done
-Allusion that (view spoiler) Unfortunately, this doesn't come up in later books
-Camp setting, as always
-The Captain + TJ, as always
-"Be yourself" message-

This would have been sweet if not for the random language. I honestly don't think it fit... there was also too much talk of make out; it was kind of annoying. I know they're 13, but I can vouch that this isn't normal...
"I'm in a serious relationship, so if you land on me you have to French Jamie instead."
[Talking about make-out robot(...)] "tongue.... left. Swipe... right."
"Eat... pizza. From... her... molar."
It was just too strange for me.

4.5 stars. I was verrrrrry nervous going into this book that I wasn't going to like it nearly as much as I enjoyed the first one but the book totally redeemed itself towards the end and I'm so so so happy. (I will say before I continue I feel like the official synopsis on the back of the book shares wayyyy more of the plot points than necessary; some of the aspects weren't introduced in over halfway through the book!)

As a camp person, I love reading this series because I feel like it's filled w
