You will enjoy this book if you have ever been to summer camp or would like to go. Mallory isn’t too sure she wants to go, but her parents convince her to give it a try since her big brother Max and her best friend Mary Ann are going, too. When Mallory arrives at Camp Blue Lake, nothing goes as planned. She ends up in a different cabin from her best friend, and her bunkmate Carine won’t leave her alone. Carine seems to get Mallory into all kinds of trouble. Read Campfire Mallory by Laurie Friedman to find out if Mallory can survive her first summer away at camp and if she ever becomes friends with Carine.
