Overview

For every parent who’s ever received a letter from a homesick child or anybody who’s ever written their parents with crazy requests from their bunk, P.S. I Hate It Here: Kids’ Letters From Camp will delight with hilarious and heartwarming real-life letters.
In the bestselling tradition of nostalgic looks at classic rites of passage, such as Camp Camp and Bar Mitzvah Disco, P.S. I Hate It Here: Kids’ Letters from Camp captures a childhood experience shared by millions. This collection of real letters written by children ages eight to sixteen to their parents about their adventures at summer camp are laugh-out-loud funny and will have readers reminiscing about their own camp days.
More than 150 letters cover all the imaginable scenarios of sleep away camp, from acing the cabin lice inspection, to rowing in the “ricotta” race, to breaking the bad news about a retainer lost in the wilderness. These letters reveal that kids are wittier and more sophisticated than we might assume, and that the experience of being away from home for the first time creates hilarious and lasting memories.

Inspired by her daughter's "melodramatic rants" from camp, Diane Falanga collected 150 hilarious, poignant letters from kids 8-16 ... Read it and remember.

I love kids. Their openness, naivete, honesty & sense of humor. This book came to my attention on CBS Sunday Morning this past weekend & at this time the video is available online. I laughed until I cried at the way the campers expressed their feelings about being away from home. I know how they felt & I went through the "stages" myself. Here is a book that couldn't be more honest & endearing. How refreshing these days, if you get my drift. The price is right & I guarantee you feelings of delight, laughter & fondness for these great young people.

This sounded so much fun but it is hard to read on the Nook and the letters were not as amusing as I imagined they would be. Still prefer the old Alan Sherman camp routine.

The sample was only one page long and not very interesting.
