Sam decides that she is going to be a CIT (counselor in training) at a sleepaway camp called Whispering Pines because her best friend, the one that she does everything for, has a boyfriend that makes Sam feel like a third wheel.  She is at a disadvantage though because she knows no one and everyone else seems to know each other.  They have all been to camp before and she is the only new girl.  Lucky for her, she finds a few great friends that help her through all of her trials through camp.  These speed bumps happen to be from two boys, Hunter and Cole, and the camp queen bee, Ashley.  This is a fun camp story that includes all of the great things from summer camp: a summer romance, sneaking out, pranks, a bit of rivalry, and many learned lessons.
This was a great quick read that lifted my spirits as I read through it.  It reminded me of my few sleepaway camp stories.  I’m sure that my friends that were always in summer camp would love it even more than I did.  Calonita is always an excellent quick read.  She is funny and overly dramatic all at the same time.  This is perfect for younger readers that have short attention spans because there are a lot of little conflicts that keep the story always moving.
