I loved the book Sleepaway Girls so much for many reasons. I liked how the author wrote the book in the new girl's point of veiw. She (Sam) had never been to camp before, and it was hard for her to pull everything together to make it the best experience possible for her peeps, or the campers that are 8 or younger. She has to do it all while facing a camp bully named Ashley, being in love with a boy named Cole, and accidentially kissing the boy she did like, but has learned that boy, Hunter, never gets far in relationships. Sam was enjoying every bit of the camp except for Ashley, the bad camp food, and having to scrub toilets. She had her new group of friends: Emily Kate, aka Em, Courtney, aka Court, and Grace, and they all helped her realize that she wasn't made to be a people pleaser, and she should be firm with her friend Mallory, aka Mal, back home. If she didn't want to do something, she should tell Mal. When Mal sends a really short video after Sam sends two videos that were at least a half hour, Sam decides that she isn't going to send Mal any more. Instead, her new friends convince her to make tapes of them with her, and they'd reveal secrets and talk about their problems in secret since they're not supossed to have electronics at camp.I've said enough, and if you want to find out more, visit Kimberly James J. Siebers Memoral Library, but not too soon. I loved the book so much that I'm reading it again!
