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?
School Library Connection - August 8, 2016
"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."
