The Best Camp Counselor in the World is a short, fun, loving story.

In 1988 Eddie is back as a Counselor in summer camp. His girlfriend does not understand why he keeps returning every year. For him this place has become a part of who he is.

Eddie is a twentyish boy working in his uncle’s shop, with an adorable girlfriend, living a quiet life. At camp he meets Ken and Erika, two other counselors, and with them will form an entertaining trio.

This year camp will not be the same; Eddie will have the opportunity to remember some important lessons about friendship, trust, the value of working with kids and the importance of being a good example for them.

Mike Ronny does a good job portraying the 80s lifestyle, the calm and peace wich used to accompany people's life. Mike creates a sweet and funny character to match a story that has the same level of energy during the whole book.

The book has a few higher moments, especially when the son of his former enemy appears and the whole Erika’s situation, but in general has a smooth rhythm.

In my opinion the first part is much funnier than the second. The last half is more a reminder of some values and messages given through Eddie's actions.

Overall is a good, entertaining book recommendable for adults that like fast and funny reading.
