I'm not actually planning on being a 'camp counselor' for a while yet, but I wanted to read this book to see if I would actually enjoy the job.
I love the way it is in diary form and is an actual account from Lucy's time there.
I bought it at about 11pm last night and only put it down at 3am to get some sleep. Between that time I had some genuine LOLs and produced so many tears I actually had to put it down for 10 minutes to pull myself together. Then I finished it at around 12pm this afternoon, it was just so addictive. It's full of so many shocks and laughs and genuinely some really interesting things about what goes on at camp.
Actually might read it again I enjoyed it so much. You actually feel like you're there with her and the book gives you an account of how you will actually be spending your days at camp.
I think I would have actually given this 4.5 stars, I think it is a bit on the expensive side and I would have liked an account or small chapter at the end of the book on what Lucy thought about everything she did, did she keep in touch with everyone, what her travelling afterwards was like, etc.
On the whole though, this has definitely made my mind up that I want to go when I have got the money!
Definitely read if you are going to be a camp counselor.
