Today, Vanessa reviews Sleepaway Girls by Jen Calonita:
Sleepaway Girls begins realistically with a hopeful teenager getting ready for her first summer as Counselor-in-Training at a in the mountains. Describing Sam's nervousness over a summer without her best friend, Jen Calonita perfectly captures the dreams we all have about what summer lays before us.
The transition from Sam's hopes to the ups and downs of the actual camp was flawless with the best friends she made and the mean girls she dealt with at the same time. Sam felt alive to me, I could easily slip myself into her shoes and feel like I was the one living through her experiences. Just as has always been close to my heart, I loved everything about reading this book. Honestly, I'd love a sequel to find out what happens next summer at the Pines.
