Overview

Snap!

With their new cameras

a brother and sister

Snap!

take pictures of their vacation.

But when they look at their photographs they see:

1. The back of Dad's head
2. Feet
3. A container of noodles

That's it?

Does 1 + 2 + 3 = summer vacation?

What about how it felt to swim in the lake? What about the stories their cousins told and the taste of a just-invented strawberry and whipped cream dessert?

For those memories—the memories of summer and the memories of family that mean the most—they need to look someplace else. Someplace deep inside. Someplace permanent.

Review: This book is a good example of realistic fiction because it deals with events that could really happen. It tells the story of a girl who takes pictures along a family trip with her camera, but finds her mental images more valuable.Level: Primary, Intermediate

This is a good example of realistic fiction because the reader can relate to the main character and the events are things that could actually happen. The main character tells about her family's vacation using the pictures she took.Age Appropriateness: Primary/ Intermediate
