Get out your camping gear -- it's time to hit the great outdoors with Abby Hayes! In Anne Mazer's 11th installment in the popular series, the red-haired journal-writer has invited a new friend, Hannah, to join the Hayes family on a camping trip. At first, Abby makes them all swear to be on their best behavior in front of Hannah, but after several arguments over campsite reservations, berry picking, and getting lost in the woods, Abby is ready to tear her red hair out. What's worse, Brianna is staying on a nearby island -- will Hannah wind up liking her better? Fortunately, Abby's friend has an ultra-positive demeanor, and Abby soon realizes she has nothing to worry about. A zippy, adventurous episode that will make you giggle (and sometimes wince) over how embarrassing families can often be, Too Close for Comfort will surely leave you wanting "s'more" of Abby Hayes!

With Jessica all princessie, Nataile at a drama camp,Mira living far away and Cleo ( her cousin) living far away also, Casey a boy and Bethany at farm camp. Abby has no choices of a friend to take with her camping until she meets Hannah at the citys 4th of July celebation in a pool. Abby desides to invite Hannah, but very soon regretes it. Because Hannah was her only choice Abby is on her toes to keep Hannah happy, but Abby desides that sometimes even though Abby loves her family, she desides that they could be so embarassing.Abby is embarassed, she doesnt want Hannah to think that her family is what they really are.But once when they get camping things go wrong. Abbys dad forgets to make a reservation, her parents fight, the twins argue and Brianna meets Hannah and trys to win Hannah over. But through it all Abby relies that her family is awsome to have around and that Hannah will be with her forever.

This is the best Abby Hayes book yet.........it shows that Abby can make make new friends really quickly and that she can deal with problems. She also figures out that having a friends/ best friends is very helpful. Not for being invited to parties and not being alone, but someone to comfert you and help you.

I'm 12 and have read all the Abby Hayes books. Just because its reccomended for 9 year olds doesn't mean you have to be nine! I love these books. I just wish they would start writing in purple again...I thought that was the fun part!

Don't get me wrong! i love abby hayes! ive been reading them since i was 10!!! Anne Mazer hasn't really tried as hard this time! her last book was good, but it really needed the purple pen. Just by looking at the book, it seemed so boring compared to all the other books of abby hayes she wrote! she needs to add the purple pen back in!!!!
