This is a book about a couple of pretty unlikable characters. They do learn and grow, just not as much as I would have preferred. I had hoped for the peripheral characters to be more fleshed out. I did like their use of Horse Camp as a new adjective for something that is not at all as it was advertised. The book did leave me wishing to know where do they go from here. Is there a sequel in the works?

My 10 year old horse crazy daughter bought this book for the title but even though there was no equestrian plot was delighted with the book and asked me to read it with her the 2nd time around. I'm glad she did. The subject matter is tough -- a divorce and criminal proceedings send 12 year old twins Percy and Penny and 3year old Pauly to their uncle's farm for the summer. Written from the perspective of the twins, the voices are distinct, the dialog is believable, the plotting is unpredictable and the result is comical and touching. I'm not sure why DD enjoys the book so much, but I was pleasantly surprised. Ten is pretty young for the subject matter here--but it has been great for talking points as we read it together.

This was not what I expected at all, but then that was the same way the twins in the book felt when they were sent to their Uncle's farm when their mom had to go to jail and their dad went off to start a new church. Their mom called it "horse camp" to make it sound like fun, but it only had two old mean horses with mostly pigs and chickens. Through Penelope's letters to her mom and dad in addition to her diary entries, the reader sees how she is growing up. This is simply a juvenile novel about accepting people and not judging others.

I didn't care for this one but it was a quick read so went ahead and finished it. Basically Christians are portrayed in this book as hypocrites, self-righteous and judgmental. If you think it will be about horses, it's not. I do not recommend this one.

When I started this book and realized it had nothing to do with horses (the reason i read it in the first place), I was really disappointed and thought it was just going to be some stupid pig book. Boy was i wrong, and Im glad I read it! Horse Camp had a lot of good life lessons and I definitely recommend it. :)
