Is Sami ready for summer camp . . . and is camp ready for her?

Samantha "Sami" Bloom is going to sleepaway camp for the first time. Sami's big sister, Maya, has always loved her summers at Camp Cedar Lake, but Sami isn't so sure she'll feel the same way. She's nervous about being away from home, trying new food, and doing the super-scary ropes course. Worst of all, Sami's annoying cousin, Daniel, is attending the same camp. It's sure to be a disaster!

But Sami never counted on delicious Shabbat dinners, funny new friends, and more than a handful of surprises -- one including Daniel himself.

No matter what, this will be a summer to remember!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jody Little
Nine-year old Sami is not a sleep-away camp kind of kid. She likes quiet activities like making up songs. She's also a picky eater, terribly afraid of heights and is certain that sleep-away camp will be a disaster. Nothing could possibly make four days at Camp Cedar Lake fun, not the fact that her older sister, Maya, will be there to greet her, and certainly not the fact that her same-age cousin, Daniel, is also going. After a long, embarrassing bus ride, Sami arrives at camp to find that her sister is not there as promised. As the days pass, however, Sami begins to enjoy her cabin mates, particularly Gabby. The meals are not nearly as bad as she expected and the activities are actually fun, especially the swimming. She doesn't even mind that her cousin is at the camp, especially when he lets go of his crazy goal for the summer. The spunky main character and strong voice make this a fast-paced and fun chapter book. Young readers will certainly relate to Sami's fears and anxieties, and they will enjoy the camp surprises right along with her. Reviewer: Jody Little
