This book was actually pretty good. Each chapter is one of the girls point of view. You get confused at first but then you get the hang of each of their stories. Three different stories between three sisters at summer camp. The ending was kind of sweet yet sad.

Here are the main characters and their stories:

CALLA- The oldest out of the girls. She is a counselor at the camp and it is her last summer before she goes to collage. She wants to get her longtime crush Duncan to fall in love with her. This is her last chance to do that. But things go out of hand, out of taking care of her sisters, going to late night campfires with the other counselors, and getting Duncan to notice her. With a embarrassing moment when she gets drunk and Duncan helps her. But when her sister's friend sends a note to Duncan telling him about Calla's feelings for him she finds out that he doesn't like her. He just likes her like a friend. She goes to get Violet when she sneaks out with her friend. When they say she has to go she feels like a failure. But with her sisters she feels better.

VIOLET- The second oldest. She is not a rule breaker. But she turns into one when she starts sneaking out with her crazy friend Brynn. She also wants to get James a cute counselor to fall in love with her. With help from Brynn she just does. She and James are really in love, but Calla isn't happy for her because James even though he is friends with Violet he is a counselor. Violet doesn't really listen to her and still likes James. Brynn gets mad when Violet didn't tell her right away that James likes her too. They fight but soon make up. Violet tells her everything that went on with her and James. Violet also tells her about Calla who likes Duncan. Which Brynn then does the plan in sending the letter to him. Violet is blamed and she and Calla get into a huge fight. She also sneaks out with Brynn and they go to a bar, meet some sleazy boys. Violet calls Calla to pick her and a drunk Brynn up. She comes and the next morning they are busted by Deena the head counselor and boss of everyone at camp. She, Calla, and Brynn have to leave camp. They are all upset. Brynn says sorry to Calla and says she meant no harm. James is upset that Violet has to leave. They promise they will keep in touch and maybe visit each other. Violet is sad to leave since things are really starting to get good for her. But she knows she broke the rules and for that she has to be punished.

DAISY- They youngest,its her second year at Camp and she doesn't like that her two sisters keep watch over her. But also feel sad when they don't pay attention to her. She likes this boy named Joel but when they kiss she doesn't like it. She figures things won't work out for them. She likes to run and makes a few good friends.But she also makes enemies two girls named Olivia and Montgomery. They hurt her and her friends. Her sisters try to help but she doesn't want that. With nasty tricks played Daisy gets upset and wants to go home. But she figures it out and things go good for her. She likes it there. Until she learns that her sisters are leaving. She knows that no matter much she likes it at camp, wherever her sisters are she will be with them all the way.

It really is THE SUMMER OF FIRSTS AND LASTS for these girls. Sisters should stay together where ever they are because they will always have each other.

So in the end, all three girls figure things out and stay together. Even though they won't be at camp. The book was sweet, funny, and cute. I loved it!!!
