With a new stepmom, sister, and baby brother in the house, Kammy's summer can't get any worse-- until she goes to camp. Twelve-year-old Kammy Whitlock had been fine living with just her dad since her mom died when she was only four. Although she gets along OK with her new stepmom, the addition of a troublesome toddler and a crying new baby has pushed her over the edge. Against her wishes, her parents have decided that Kammy needs a break from home life until her siblings have settled in. Kammy goes to Camp Arrowhead with the understanding that if she's miserable, she can come home after two weeks. If not, she'll stick it out the rest of the summer. But surviving even two weeks is going to be tough-- she's already gotten lost at night and made an enemy of Susie. Maybe Kammy just doesn't fit in anywhere. This ebook features an illustrated personal history of Ann M. Martin, including rare images from the author's collection.

I enjoyed meeting Kammy and her family. This would be a great book for any tween that feels like nobody really understands how much they want their family to just stay the same.

Kams liked the way things were. She and her dad knew how they liked to do things. So when the summer starts with him marrying Kate, a "package deal" with a two year daughter and "baby boy" on the way, Kammy knows nothing will ever be the same. Kate and two-year-old Muffin really try to be nice, but somehow Kams always ends up feeling like am extra wheel and acting out. So Dad and Kate offer Kams another option - go to camp, leaving home for the first time, while Kate, Muffin, and Dad sort things out. Read to find out if things could really get any worse, and if Kate can grow to find her place at camp and in her family.
