Description
Laney Parker is a city girl through and through. For her, summertime means stepping out of her itchy gray school uniform and into a season of tanning at rooftop swimming pools, brunching at sidewalk cafes, and as soon as the parents leave for the Hamptons partying at her classmates apartments.
But this summer Laney's mother has other plans for Laney. It's called Camp Timber Trails and rustic doesn t even begin to describe the un-air-conditioned log cabin nightmare. Laney is way out of her element the in-crowd is anything but cool, popularity seems to be determined by swimming skills, and the activities seem more like boot camp than summer camp.
Splattered with tie dye fall out, stripped of her cell, and going through Diet Coke withdrawal, Laney is barely hanging on. Being declared the biggest loser of the bunk is one thing, but when she realizes her summer crush is untouchably uncrushable in the real world, she starts to wonder, can camp cool possibly translate to cool cool?
Summer camp might just turn this city girl's world upside down
