Title: Sleepaway Girls Author: Jen Calonita Publisher: Little, Brown Number Of Pages: 298
Summary From Back Of Book: When Sam’s best friend gets her first boyfriend, she’s not ready to spend her summer listening to them call each other “pookie.” Sick of being a third wheel, Sam applies to be a counselor-in-training at Whispering Pines camp in the New York Catskills. But what she doesn’t realize is that it’s not going to be all Kumbaya sing-alongs and gooey s’mores. If Ashley, the alpha queen of Whispering Pines, doesn’t ruin Sam’s summer, then her raging crush on the surfer-blond and flirtatious Hunter just might. At least she has playful Cole, who’s always teasing her but is oh-so-comfortable to hang out with, and the singular gang of girls who become fast friends with Sam-they call themselves the Sleepaway Girls.
Review: Sleepaway Girls was so cute! I really enjoyed it. There was a lot of pop culture references, okay a lot of Disney channel pop culture references. Anyway, I found it to be a really fast read and actually made me want to go to summer camp. (I probably will never go though.) Along with it being cute it was funny and I found myself either smiling or laughing most of the time while reading it. I loved all of Sam’s friends and wished they were my friends. It was very romantic in a cute way. (How many times am I going to say cute?) All in all I suggest this book when it comes out on May 1st.
I recommend this book if you like summer camp, friendships, kids, romance, and YA novels.
