Vic Brown did not want to go to camp this summer. Even though it’s nice being back with her friends at Meadow Wood, Vic still can’t forget about the secret reason her mom wanted her and her brother out of the house — her parents' marriage problems — or how much her family is going to change. When her home life is blowing up, it can be hard to focus on campfires and canoeing.
But there is something about summer and surprises that go together like blueberry pancakes and maple syrup. And soon, Vic starts to feel like — just maybe — a summer at Meadow Wood was exactly what she needed. From the author of A Kind of Paradise comes a beautiful and heartfelt middle grade novel about a girl who finds comfort in the warm traditions and unexpected friendships of summer camp.
"Slowly, with the help of her curmudgeonly but caring counselor Chieko, who is brooding over her own recent breakup with her girlfriend, and the mentoring of diligent camp co-director Earl, Vic begins to see a way through her struggles.... A gentle novel perfect for middle graders looking for a summer read." — Kirkus Reviews
