Not a Happy Camper chronicles a young girl's adventures at a summer camp in 1974 where the sun never shines, the breakfast cereal is ancient, and many of the counselors speak no English.

For eight eye-opening and unforgettable weeks, Mindy Schneider and her eccentric band of friends--including Autumn Evening Schwartz, the daughter of hippies, who communicates with the dead, and the sleep-dancing, bibliophile Betty Gilbert--keep busy feuding in color wars, failing at sports, and uncovering the camp's hidden past. As Mindy focuses on landing the perfect boyfriend and longs for her first kiss, she unexpectedly stumbles across something infinitely grander: herself.

Hilarious, charming, and glowing with nostalgia, Not a Happy Camper is a must-read for anyone who's ever been to summer camp, or wishes they had.
