Sleepaway Girls by Jen Calonita is an adorable and fun summer read!

Sam’s best friend has a boyfriend this summer, and Sam refuses to hang around all summer being the third wheel. So she decides to sign up to be a counselor-in-training at Whispering Pines summer camp in the New York Catskills.

Of course, what summer camp experience would be complete without the camp counselor “queen bee” who likes to give Sam hell, and a super hot crush she just can’t help but flirt with? Sam also makes friends with a group of counselor-in-training girls who label themselves “The Sleepaway Girls.” The girls have a blast all summer sneaking off and documenting their summer experiences to remember for a lifetime.

And then add to the summer experience, Cole: the playful guy who Sam becomes fast friends with.

This book was pretty much your typical mindless summer read, complete with a totally predictable plot, but it was still entertaining. I give it three out of five stars!
