Top Three Reasons Camp Minnehaha is The Worst

1. The spiders (wayyyy too many legs)

2. King Arthur (a rampaging goat intent on my destruction)

3. Victoria a.k.a The Diva (an evil cabin mate obsessed with French beauty products and my humiliation)

Chloe McCorkle knew a summer camp where you had to learn a career was a bad idea. She tried to tell her parents, but they just had to go on vacation to Alaska and ship her off for two weeks. It's not ideal, but she's going to try to make the best of it. She might even learn some skills that will help her make money for the new bike she's been eyeing. But Chloe quickly discovers there's only one area at which she excels; she manages to get more demerits than anyone else in camp...

    Gr 4-6-Souder's third book brings fun and laughter to middle grade readers. In this adventure, Chloe is sent away to sleepover camp for two weeks while her parents are on a cruise. She dreads the idea of going to camp. Once there, Chloe gets into all kinds of high jinks. For example, on arrival, she is attacked by a goat named King Arthur, has a food fight with her arch nemesis Victoria, and attempts to put Director Mudwimple's underwear up the flagpole. Each time Chloe is caught doing something mischievous, she gets a demerit. Worst of all, her school crush is at camp and she keeps embarrassing herself in front of him. Tweens will relate to Chloe's angsty journal entries and her friendship with Pogo, and laugh at all the silly situations she finds herself in. A quick and easy summer read with likable characters. VERDICT An entertaining and lighthearted choice perfect for summer readers looking for breezy titles to take to the beach (or summer camp).-Megan McGinnis, Sachem Public Library, Holbrook, NY
