We all have those lightweight summer reads, right? Beach reads, we call them. They range from not so serious to downright trash, and they are brain candy for the vacation months. Why should we have all the fun? There are plenty of fluffy series for kids, too, but this one is perfect summer girly fare, being set at summer camp and heavily peppered with drawings to break up all that tiresome text. ;)

This is most decidedly not quality literature, folks, but a light little look at camp in a graphic-sprinkled format reminiscent of Wimpy Kid or Dork Diaries. Normally, I wouldn’t recommend something in this vein, to be honest, but I’m thinking summer is exactly the perfect time for this sort of thing, am I right?

It’s definitely for girls in the 9-12 age range, highlighting friendships, pranks, ridiculous mishaps, and a light note of boycraziness that really only results in one minor crush and a simple kiss goodbye at the very end. It’s pitched just right for the age, and while as a grownup I wasn’t in love with the narrator, I suspect that the intended audience will find lots to relate to! If you have a girl who is not overly serious spending the summer in your house, this would probably keep her busy for a few of those long hours before school starts again… !
