Grade 4-6,When best friends Agnes and Prejean find themselves in different bunks at science camp, it seems like the end of fun. Worse yet, Agnes, who by nature is nice, is partnered with bad-tempered, bluntly honest Nyssa. Predictable summer camp high jinks follow, with pranks revenging pranks, while these seventh graders struggle to get to know their atypical bunkmates. Agnes admires aspects of Nyssa's personality and finds herself changing for the better, while she is becoming aware of Prejean's beauty and mystique from a distance. Readers will find this both an introspective look at character traits and a fun romp in nature as they observe bright kids having adventures at Camp Numanu.
