Product Description

Product Description

When seventeen-year-old track and field star Jesse Collins’s dreams of a full scholarship are shattered after the sudden death of her dad, she leaves home to work as a summer camp counsellor to escape the nosy stares in small town…and her own secret guilt. After a mix-up at registration, she’s put in charge of a boys’ cabin, and the head counsellor, Kirk, predicts she won’t last the first two weeks.

In the midst of fending off four twelve-year-old boys who are hell-bent on mortifying her and a growing attraction to Kirk, Jesse finds the inspiration to run again from an unlikely source. After all, a good pair of legs can take a girl far, but it’s facing the truth that makes all the difference.

Myers had me fall in love with the characters immediately and I had empathy for the main character, Jesse, for many aspects of her life. A typical teenager in many ways, she was trying to reinvent herself after suffering a devastating loss doing what she loves - running.

Jesse has the need to escape her past and found the perfect friend who is helping her do that. First one the agenda is to find the best kisser, second is to work at a summer camp hours away from where everyone knew her. At seventeen years old, Jesse had it all just a few months before, including an hilarious grandmother who was realistic in her expectations, packing many extras that were later used for decorating purposes. She ended up having to send more.

A story of summer camp leaders and campers struggling to find their place in between water safety lessons and macrame classes.

Highly recommended as a beach read for older teenagers as it deals with some mature content near the end.

Thanks for reading,

Sarah Butland
