Ten-and-three-quarter-year-old Laura “Noodle” Newman had high hopes about going to sleepaway camp for the first time. Once she’s there, however, Noodle is miserable. No one can help her get over her terrible homesickness. Things go from bad to worse when Noodle panics while talking on the camp’s radio station. Noodle’s moment to shine becomes a bout of stage fright as her bunkmates laugh at her. As a menacing hurricane heads up the coast, life at Camp Hillside turns upside down. Through the craziness, Noodle realizes that only one person can make her feel better: herself. Told in Noodle’s witty, earnest, and distinctive voice, Hurricamp! emulates the quirkiness of Beverly Cleary’s Ramona books combined with Judy Blume’s relatable dialogue. Parents and children alike will identify with Noodle’s vulnerabilities and the humorous lessons she learns on her adventures at Camp Hillside.

About the Author

In third grade, Steph Katzovi announced that she was going to be author when she grew up.

Realizing that she might want to explore other career options first, Steph got her bachelor’s degree from Binghamton University before attending Brooklyn Law School. Although she aced the Legal Writing classes and wrote amazing outlines for exams, Steph knew her calling was not as a practicing attorney. After graduation, Steph shelved her law degree and two bar admissions to become a professional writer. She spent the bulk of her 15+ year career at Deloitte as a speechwriter and strategic communications consultant. When the opportunity arose to raise her children and focus more fully on creative writing, Steph decided it was time to take her “When I Grow Up” essay from third grade a bit more seriously.

If she’s not busy writing at her desk in New York City, Steph is a sports and exercise enthusiast. She also enjoys playing guitar and piano with her two sons, going out on date nights with her husband, and reading. . .preferably poolside.
