Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 9 to 12.

Mallory's summer is off to a nervous start. She is going to sleep-away camp for the first time and is not convinced that she is going to have the great time everyone insists she will. Not only will Mallory miss her parents, but she has to leave her cat, Cheeseburger, too. Still, camp has its attractions, especially since she will be going with her best friend Mary Ann. They are eager to be bunkmates for two weeks, dress alike, and do everything together. But when they arrive at Camp Blue Lake, the first in a series of disasters occurs: Mallory and Mary Ann are put in different cabins. To make matters worse, Mary Ann has a new best bunkmate while Mallory has Carine, a cabin catastrophe. Carine manages to mess up every experience Mallory has been looking forward to. While Mallory tries to overcome her frustration, it is not until she screws up something for Carine that she learns to put herself in someone else's flip-flops, and to forgive and forget. Themes of second chances, friendship, and overcoming the fear of new experiences will resonate with middle-grade girls, while fans of the "Mallory" series will be glad to read about the latest adventures of the Wish Pond Road Gang. Reviewer: Keri Collins Lewis

School Library Journal

Gr 3-5- This book takes readers to camp and makes them want to stay there. Mallory has all of the fears of a typical nine-year-old going to a strange place for the first time. When she gets there, however, she discovers that parts of camp are fun but that learning to get along with her bunkmate is a big challenge. This ninth book in the series stands on its own. The plot is believable, and the language is well suited to the intended audience. Mallory's diary entries and black-and-white cartoons appear throughout. The action is well paced and while the focus is on the protagonist's interactions with her bunkmate, readers get a good feel for the whole camp experience. A lighthearted, enjoyable read.-Esther Moberg, Creswell Library, OR
