NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! "Miller tells a story that isn’t often told – that of an overbearing friendship that threatens to develop into codependency"—New York Times Book Review "There’s nothing more irksome than going to camp with a close friend and getting dumped in favor of a bunch of new kids—unless it’s going to camp with a close friend and having her turn clingy and jealous when you try to talk to anyone else."—Wall Street Journal "Fans of the first book, Click (2018), will especially appreciate this all-around excellent summer read." —Booklist "[A] sweet summer camp story about friendship in a multicultural setting." —Kirkus —

Olive and her BFF head to sleepaway camp, and there are many different people and activities to pull them in different directions. This is natural. It's expected. But it's always tricky on both ends.
CAMP shows how this goes, how that thread of friendship is tested and stretched, how it can rope in others, as well. Sooo good. Exactly what our adolescents need when navigating growing friendship circles (due to new schools, new experiences) in an emotionally slippery time of love and mistakes, new interests and old connections.
Bonus: instructions to make your own friendship bracelets are at the end of the book.
Olive and Willow are headed to camp. Olive is super excited, and Willow’s a bit nervous. Once they arrive, Olive’s ready to try new activities and make new friends, and Willow is a bit more apprehensive, struggling to fit in and share Olive with the other campers.
My students would refer to Willow as a “clinger.” Being a 4th/5th grade teacher, I felt the friendship challenges were something I often see. The fear of missing out and jealousy when friend groups shift are occurrences that happen often at this age. I felt the advice given to Olive by the older campers was spot on and what kids need to hear.
Added bonuses were the back-matter: instructions on how to make friendship bracelets and information on Rube Goldberg machines!
Highly recommend for grades 3 and up!
Here's what the story is about:
Olive and Willow are best friends. The book is called Camp, so it's no surprise that they're going to camp. Olive is excited, but Willow is nervous. When they arrive at camp, Olive starts making friends with the other campers. Willow feels left out. Towards the end of the story, though, Willow becomes friend with the other campers, too.
Friendship, funny moments, drama.....this book has it all! Definitely add this to your reading list.
