For twenty long years, Gigi Goldstein has been pining away for her best friend’s guy. She knows it’s wrong and it has to stop, but she hasn’t been able to let go ever since they all met on the bus to summer camp back when they were 7 years old. The same week that her best friends finally announce their wedding date, Gigi loses her high-profile design job. With all of her dreams unravelling, she runs to the last place she remembers being happy.
Taking the Head Counselor position at Camp Chinooka, Gigi hopes to reclaim the joy she felt as a camper, but the job isn’t all campfire songs and toasting marshmallows. Gigi’s girls are determined to make her look bad in front of the boys’ Head Counselor—the sexy but infuriating Perry—and every scrap of the campground is laced with memories.
When Gigi finally realizes she can’t escape the present by returning to her past, she’s forced to reexamine her life and find the true meaning of love. But will she be able to mend fences and forgive herself before she loses her one real shot at happiness?
A fun summer contemporary read based at Summer Camp. I loved the Summer Camp element of this book. The writing was amazing and the summer-y vibes were brilliant. I loved the fun summer camp feel of this novel. This reads like a brilliant romantic comedy movie that left me smiling.
Gigi is running away from life and becomes a camp councillor at her old childhood camp. The fun commotion between Gigi and Perry had me laughing as I turned the pages. The development of these two characters was amazing to read.
This debut novel is amazing with fantastic summer vibes. Never having gone to summer camp before I loved getting a slice of it in this novel. I loved everything about this book. With a fantastic writing style which was light and heartwarming.
