About the Book

Jess Goes To Camp is the story of soon-to-be fifth grader Jessica Brozek as she ventures off to spend an exciting summer session at Camp Clover with her six closest friends.  The girls experience a multitude of wonderful things at Camp Clover, but the fun suddenly comes to a halt when some of the boys from nearby Camp Archer decide to stir things up a bit.  The boys decide to play a number of pranks on the girls, to include tipping their rowboat over in the lake, starting an ice cream fight, and raiding Camp Clover’s end of season bonfire.  But what happens when Jess and her friends decide to take revenge on the boys in a major way?  Better yet, how does Jess react upon meeting Andrew Robinson at the dance, the cutest boy she has ever laid eyes on?  This is a fun story for both boys and girls that features plenty of giggles and non-stop action for hours on end.
