Summer State of Mind

Harper McAllister @HarperMc
Sending a frizz-hating, Prada-wearing girl like me to CAMP? You know how this will end! I’ll be eaten by a bear. #wishsummerwasoveralready

Summer has finally arrived and fifteen-year-old Harper McCallister intends to spend her days at the mall shopping or by the pool at her country club. But after receiving her latest heart-stopping credit card bill, Harper’s parents makes other plans, and ship her off to camp.

Suddenly, the clueless yet ever-popular Harper is the new girl at the bottom of a social ladder she can’t climb in wedge sandals and expensive clothes. She seems to be winning over super-cute camp “Lifer” Ethan, though, and if she can manage to make a few friends–and stay out of trouble–she just might find a whole new summer state of mind.

A fresh and funny summer-camp companion novel to Jen Calonita’s hit Sleepaway Girls.

“…Readers will respond to how the newly rich Harper struggles with identity issues…The book illustrates some important lessons: money doesn’t buy true friends; good friends are harder to come by, and they can only be “bought” with authentic and meaningful nurturing.”―Booklist

“The perfect summertime read! It’s sweet, funny, and made me want to head to camp immediately.”―Katie Finn, author of the Top 8 series and Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend
