BOOK REVIEW: Camp Rolling Hills Book One by Stacy Davidowitz


A hilarious and heartfelt series about the particular magic of summer camp—a place where reinvention is possible and friends are like family—from a sparkling debut talent.

Finally, it's summer! Stephanie—aka Slimey—has been counting the days until she can return to her favorite place in the entire world, Camp Rolling Hills. And this year she's especially happy to be back—she'll have eight blissful weeks away from home, where life has been decidedly rocky.

New kid Bobby, on the other hand, is pretty sure he's in for the worst summer of his life. He does not understand his weirdo cabinmates, the group singing, and the unfortunate nicknames (including his: Smelly). But he does understand Slimey, and the two soon fall in crush. This summer might not be so bad after all!

But then a fight sets off an epic, campwide, girls-versus-boys prank war. Bunks are raided! Boxer shorts are stolen! And it's up to Slimey and Smelly to keep the peace.

REVIEW BY: Michaela, age 11 years, 8 months


I enjoyed this book very much. 

The relationship between Smelly and Slimey is so nice that when you are reading the book, you feel like you are wrapped in a furry blanket. When you get to the hilarious part(s) you feel like you are actually there. 

My favorite character was Rick because he is soooo relaxed and the way the author describes him, I would not mind him being my cabin counselor. 

My favorite part is when the girls steal all of the boys' underwear. I thought it was absolutely, without a doubt, hilarious! 

The plot of this book is that Smelly (aka Bobby) is new to the camp and then Slimey and him meet. During the days of camp, they start to like each other. 

I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about summer camp and first crushes. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 13.
