Kirkus Reviews

[A] sweet summer camp story about friendship in a multicultural setting.

School Library Journal

Gr 4-7--Olive and Willow go to sleepaway camp together, but will they still be best friends when they return? Olive (first introduced in Miller's Click) easily befriends fellow campers, but Willow is more reserved and becomes jealous of Olive's new pals. Willow is soon demanding all of Olive's attention, and Olive, in turn, grows resentful. Readers will love the depiction of realistic friendship drama and the fun camp setting. Camp counselors intervene when necessary, but both girls show a lot of growth by the end of the story as lessons are learned and friendships healed. The activities will make readers wish they were at camp, too, especially at the end of the book when groups team up to film a Rube Goldberg machine for a music video. Expressive cartoon artwork is eye-catching and brings the setting to life. Olive and Willow are both white, but racial diversity is well represented among the campers. VERDICT Hand to patrons looking for something after Raina Telgemeier's Smile or Victoria Jamieson's Roller Girl. For every library.-Allison McLean, Elkhart Public Library, IN

Review quotes

"Miller tells a story that isn't often told - that of an overbearing friendship that threatens to develop into codependency"—New York Times Book Review

"There's nothing more irksome than going to camp with a close friend and getting dumped in favor of a bunch of new kids—unless it's going to camp with a close friend and having her turn clingy and jealous when you try to talk to anyone else."—Wall Street Journal
