For the past nine years, Helena Waite has been returning to summer camp at Southpoint. Every year the camp and its familiar routines, landmarks, and people have welcomed her back like a long-lost family member. But this year she is returning not as a camper, but as a counselor, while her best friend, Katie Bell remains behind. All too quickly, Helena discovers that the innocent world of campfires, sing-alongs, and field days have been pushed aside for late night pranks on the boys' camp, skinny dipping in the lake, and stolen kisses in the hayloft.

This book began as what seemed like a novel for preteens and then suddenly some not so G-rated topics were introduced. Not a very good book in terms of substance and characters. The message that was attempted in this novel was meaningful though, it just was not portrayed well. An okay summer read but it was more depressing and disconcerting than light, sweet and meaningful all at once.
