Some ways to cope with problems facing many children; divorce, peer pressure, loneliness, drinking, romance I found very insightful. While one parent is dealing with changed circumstances and starting a new life, the children are too, and losing their old life, friends, all that is familiar and safe. Wonderful complex characters but all with an underlying love that allows for joy at rainbows, campfires, and music
At first, I thought this might be a "creepy summer camp" novel and I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be a light, fun, and heartwarming novel. Copeland has this amazing knack for creating relevant and engaging young adult characters, making it easy to love Nina and all of the campers she built relationships with. I liked Nina immediately because I can relate to how difficult it is to feel overwhelmed when I don't have control over events or people, especially when those events or people have an adverse effect on my life. I think Copeland expressed Nina's feelings well and I didn't think Nina was whiny or being dramatic.
The other characters in the book are truly just as amazing as Nina. There are a couple of characters who could be considered as "antagonists," and it's pretty clear who these people are from the beginning. I was warned about a possible trigger because of an attempted assault in the plot; however, it wasn't an issue for me since the perpetrator wasn't able to go through with it.
I enjoyed the premise and I loved that the supernatural/paranormal aspect of the novel was ESP. Drops of Sunshine was a nice break from the norm and I think readers who are looking for a light and interesting read will enjoy it.
1. The campers attending Camp Green Lake live life being blind, visually impaired, deaf, near deaf, have down syndrome, etc. Tricia shows the readers that these campers might be "impaired" but they are capable of doing amazing things. Horseback riding, archery, canoeing, nothing stops them from enjoying life and that's the way it should be.
2. The campers have exceptional talents and I'm not referring to their arts and crafts skills. They could read minds and, in doing so, they helped Nina feel less alone -- which is usually a role of the counselor. In her sadness and her determination to focus on the camper's needs above her own, she formed a bound with each extraordinary child.
Now as for Nina, honestly, she wasn't my favorite character in the world. Really, no particular counselor held my interest more than another. With that said, I am strictly basing my score on the two points above and the uniqueness of the campers and the plot.
If you are looking for a book for your teenager, pre-teen, then I do suggest adding this one to their reading list. I think they'll enjoy it. I did and I'm well past my teens. :)
