Sam is sick of hearing her best friend, Mal and her boyfriend, Mark calling each other "pookie" and being the third wheel. So, Sam decides to apply to be a counselor-in-training at Whispering Pines camp in the New York Catskills. Sam soon figures out that camp isn't what it seems. She quickly become enemies with Ashley, the queen bee and daughter of the camp's owner. Sam starts having a crush on the very flirtatious, Hunter. She also has playful and oh-so-comfortable, Cole. Sam luckily finds a gang of girls that she becomes very quick friends of, and they call each other, Sleepaway Girls.
I really liked Sleepaway Girls. It was cute and a quick summer read. The characters were real and multidimensional. Calonita brings her writing style from The Secrets of My Hollywood Life series to this fun book. I also felt like I was back at camp. It is a must read for summer.
Sleepaway Girls comes out on May 1st, 2009.
Peace out Sarah.
