In this book, Maggie Thrash has spent basically every summer of her fifteen-year-old life at the one-hundred-year-old Camp Bellflower for Girls, set deep in the heart of Appalachia. She is from Atlanta, never kissed anyone, really likes the Backstreet boys, and most of her summer is peaceful until this second on a random day in camp-a split second of physical contact from an older counselor, which is like a gut twisting love. But she is surprised that the reaction was towards the older Female counselor named Erin. But at camp Bellflower, you can’t fall in love with another girl there, and the camp’s rifle range is the only thing keeping her heart at bay from an exposition. But when it seems like Erin, the counselor, might feel the same about Maggie, it’s too much for the both of them and the rest of Camp to understand, or handle.
I would tell everyone to read it. After the first few pages, I was hooked to the book, and I wanted to see what happened to Maggie, because I know people with similar stories, of being attracted to someone they didn’t think they could be attracted to, and to anyone going through such a challenge. I think this book could help them figure out what to do, because knowing one person’s story and challenge could give you a new perspective on the challenge you are facing.
