Overview

Dear ____________________,

I know I can never really tell you about my summer at Camp Pine Haven. Since nobody here knows the real me I've decided to become a new person. I've gotten a fresh start as a loud, funny girl named J.D. (So much cooler sounding than Judith Duckworth!) I've made a point of picking activities Judith would NEVER choose, finding friends Judith would never talk to, and saying things Judith would never say. I just wonder how far I'll have to go to keep up the act.

Sincerely,
JD

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
Girls who go to summer camp, and especially those who would like to, will enjoy this book. Camp activities and schedules are explained in Judy's, the protagonist's, daily diary. Judith decides to change her personality and even her name. At camp she is known as "J.D." and she tells fellow campers that J.D. stands for Juvenile Delinquent. To Judith's amazement, she becomes the life of the party and the most popular girl in her cabin. Judith refers to a home problem, but doesn't reveal what it is until the last day of camp. She confides her story to one of the counselors. The girls at the camp are described realistically and their personalities are expertly drawn. The ups and downs the girls experience at camp are true to life. Judith acts up in swimming class and is asked to leave in spite of the fact that she is the best swimmer. At a dance, she violates the rules by walking off the porch with a boy from a nearby camp. Another faux pas occurs when Judith is instrumental in getting girls together for a dancing group. The counselor tells her the dance is too risque for the younger girls at camp. Judith finally complies with the counselor's wishes. This is a fun book and most girls will enjoy it; however, it may not be the book boys will choose to read. This book is part of a trilogy "Summer Camp Secrets" with different girls assuming the heroine role at summer camp. Reviewer: Jennie DeGenaro
