Classification: Fiction

Synopsis: Camp! Songs by the bonfire, first kisses, summer fun . . . but not at Camp Calliope, prison camp for the overweight. That’s where Cam Phillips’s parents have shipped her off to eat controlled portions, endure rigorous exercise, and sleep in a bunk full of girls who’d rather exchange recipes than ghost stories and gossip. That is except for one cool girl from Texas, Faith Masters, who is normal enough to help Cam stay sane and temporarily replace her best friend, Evie.
 
Then there’s Jesse, the only thing close enough to drool-worthy on this camp’s menu. Cam can totally relate to him, since his basketball-coach dad sounds a lot like her perfectly thin, successful mom. It looks like for the next eight weeks, only the issues (and not the food) on Cam plate will be supersized.
