  • Short Description
In this high-interest novel for young readers, Charlotte has to find a way to stand up to bullies at summer camp without becoming a target herself.
If heaven is friendship and kindness, hell is summer camp.

Charlotte Summers is sure that summer camp is going to be a disaster. And she’s right. But it’s not as disastrous for her as it is for her counselor, Abby. Abby has no control over the girls in her charge. The control is held by the cabin’s mean girl. Charlotte realizes that she could tip the balance of power and unseat the bully, but does she have the courage to go for it?

Frieda Wishinsky is the international award-winning author of over seventy books. She writes picture books, chapter books, novels and nonfiction. Her books have been translated into many languages. Frieda lives in Toronto, Ontario. For more information, visit friedawishinsky.com.

"Features compelling characters and realistic dialogue." - VOYA Magazine

"Wishinsky captures the brutal reality of bullying in a camp environment very well." - Resource Links

"In direct, simple prose, Wishinsky relates the dark side of camp life when campers can't stand up to the bully. However, she also describes Charlotte's success at friendship and self-defense...[T]his high interest book will appeal to reluctant readers." - School Library Connection
