Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Anita Barnes Lowen
TTYL (talk to you later) promise the girls who shared Bunk 3C at an eight-week-long sleep-away camp. Through emails, instant messaging, and blogging, these far-apart friends keep in touch, give advice, and help each other work through the problems of boyfriends, middle school, and parents. There is Natalie who loves shopping, sushi, and hanging out with her best friend Hannah. But Natalie is growing up fast and has a new interest…boys! Now Hannah is acting weird. Could Hannah be worried that Natalie is outgrowing her? Grace discovers drama at camp. She wants to join the after-school drama club but her parents say no. Grace is not the kind of girl who normally goes against her parents' wishes, but "desperate times call for desperate measures, don't they?" Jenna is tired of shuttling back and forth between her newly divorced mom and dad. It is not fair she is missing her friends' parties because she is expected to spend every weekend with her Dad. Her parents are the ones who split up. So why is Jenna the one who is suffering? And Alex is discovering that middle school is a whole lot different from elementary school. She has to try out for soccer for the first time ever. Alex knows she will not be a star like she was in fifth grade, but will she even make the team? From the "Camp Confidential" series, this book is a quick, easy, and entertaining read for girls only.
Children's Literature - Julie Williams
Jenna, Natalie, Grace, and Alex have a great summer being bunkmates at Camp Lakeview, but now that summer is over, each of them returns home to school. As they each make the exciting, yet scary transition into middle school, they also tackle minor problems that will require the support of others. Because of Jenna's parents' divorce, she must spend every weekend with her dad, causing her to miss weekend parties with her friends. After hearing about the illness of a fellow camper's dad, Jenna learns to be grateful for time spent with her own. Meanwhile, Natalie feels like things between herself and her best friend, Hannah, just are not the same. Natalie befriends a boy named Simon at camp, but after starting back to school, she finds herself liking Kyle as well. Hannah feels left out and thinks that Natalie just does not have time for her and a boyfriend. Grace has problems of her own: experience with drama makes her look forward to joining the drama club at school, but her parents refuse to allow it. Going against her parents, Grace attends drama club after school, until her parents put an end to it. Finally, Alex, who has always been good at soccer, finds that she is no longer the best, which limits her playing time. When Alex finally gets into a game and attempts to score a goal, she falls and sprains her ankle. Though potentially devastating, these challenges do not defeat Alex. Throughout each of their individual problems, the girls advise each other through email and instant messaging documents, which the author Melissa Morgan includes in the book. After all the problems are solved, the girls set a date for a camp reunion. Although these girls grow from childhood to adolescence,their problems make them realize that they have much more to learn. "The Camp Confidential TTYL" series explains the stories of these girls' lives at different stages, and Melissa Morgan ensures that one need not read the previous books to follow and enjoy the current installment.

    Alex

    This book was awsome! When I got it I did not want to put it down. I finished it the same day I got it! My favorite characters in this book are Alex and Natalie. The book takes you through Alex's, Grace's, Jenna's, and Natalie's lifes so you get to know them better. I definetly recamend it!
