Friendship is just like a special, breakable diamond that should be handled with care; if you don’t get handle it with care it would break, and we would be hard to put the pieces back together.

After really enjoying the first three stories in the Camp Confidential series (reminding me of my own childhood experiences at camp decades ago), I was disappointed by book 4. It could use some serious editing (the number of "just's" could have well been a voice choice but it really bumped me out of the flow of the story to see three or more sometimes in a single paragraph) and the overly dramatized "fight" between the girls seemed pretty petty and unnecessary.

It also felt like the author was d

This was my second favorite book out of the Camp Confidential books that I have read so far.
Spoiler Alert!
Camp Confidential Alex’s Challenge by Melissa J. Morgan is a fiction book. The theme of this book is that sometimes not everything works out the way you want it to. Many people are good at different things so we learn from each other.
This book is about teenage girls going to a camp for the summer. In this book there is some drama between friends and not everyone agrees all the time. Like in school, at this camp you take some classes to learn new things. All the girls and guys ge

The book I read was “Camp Confidential: Alex’s Challenge.” The author of the book is Melissa J. Morgan and it was published in 2005. Alex is a soccer player and she loves sports and winning. Alex’s best friend Brynn loves drama class and always asks Alex to help her practice her lines with her. Alex and her friends love to go to Camp Lakeview every year. This book is informative and practical because it shows us the reality in friendship.
This book is about Alex’s and Brynn’s friendship falling

This book is about a girl named Alex whose life practically revolves around soccer. Well she has diabetes but no one knows about it exept for the counslors. Which means she is around them most of the time when the other campers think she is just sucking up to them to be little miss perfect. But when Alex and her best friend Brynn get in a fight and the Color War a camp game that they play every year during the last couple of days at camp it all gets to be too much for her. Right when she is abou ...more

Alex Kim is finding the lat two weeks of camp particularly difficultly. on top of now having and ex-bestfriend, the other girls in her bunk are getting suspicious about her eating habits. some of the girls in the bunk think that she might have an eating disorder, but none of them know the real truth: that Alex was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes just last fall.

I would recommend this book to anyone because the writing perfectly captures how she was dealing with her ex-bestfriend and keeping her di
I mistakenly thought this was the first in the Camp Confidential series and picked it up as part of my efforts to familiarize myself with popular series for middle schoolers. This series is supposedly targeted at ages 10 - 12, but I can see it being even more popular with a younger crowd. The innocence is refreshing compared to other books about 11 year olds! In this book, the main character suffers with juvenille diabetes, so it is a nice addition for a school library collection seeking to incl ...more

This is my summary for Camp Confidential Alex’s Challenge:
This book was really good and I am enjoying the series. This book was about Alex Kim going to Camp Lakeview for the summer to meet new people or to have fun. Everyone thinks of Alex as a girl who is outing, sporty, and responsible. Now, she is changing her attitude a lot like, being less active and getting out of eating some foods. She is stuck in a situation because she has new and old friends surrounding her but they are starting to res

I don't know what I was thinking when I bought it, because I didn't read it until at least two years after, but when I did I thought it was a really good book, and now, the best one in the series. Haven't read them all yet though.

Alex is definitely one of my favourite girl in the series. Super sad she doesn't have another book of her own in this series.
