I love being asked to review books. A book? For me? For free? Awesome!
But a young adult book? Eh. I wasn’t too jazzed, but thought, hey why not? The author grew up in a town right next to mine in New Jersey, so…I used that as my deciding factor.
I started reading Summer Sleep-Away and was surprised at how into the book I got. The storyline and characters captured my attention immediately and I breezed through it in a few days.
The plot took me back to summers of my youth. I didn’t attend sleep-away camp, because I was too much of a homesick baby, but I do remember the thrill of your first summer love and the fun that comes with sneaking around in the moonlight.
Ah, to be young again!
If you have a tween/teen in your life that is looking for a fun summer read to get through the last few weeks before school starts, send them Summer Sleep-Away! I have a feeling they won’t be able to put it down.
From the publisher:
Summer Sleep-Away is a tale of a young boy’s first summer going off to sleep-away camp. Far from home, separated from his family and not knowing a soul, Mattie Kleinfeld is scared, homesick and cries himself to sleep. But soon the tears give way to new friends and fantastic adventures. Mattie goes hiking and fishing. He sails and swims and participates in team sports. But it is not the canoe trips or the overnights that set this summer apart; it is not even his first girlfriend. It is a clue that he and his pals stumble upon that leads them to the adventure of a lifetime, to a vast treasure and to a window that sheds light on Mattie’s unique background.
