Waiting on Wednesday: Slept Away

Slept Away by Julie Kraut
What’s this city girl’s worst nightmare? Summer camp.

Laney Parker's a city girl through and through. For her, summertime means stepping out of her itchy gray school uniform and into a season of tanning at rooftop swimming pools, sidewalk dining in the Meatpacking District, and—as soon as the parents leave for the Hamptons—parties at her classmates’ apartments.

But this summer Laney’s mother has her own plan for Laney—Camp Timber Tops—and faster than a girl can pack her eye cream, she’s shipped off.

Now, splattered with tie-dye fallout, stripped of her cell, and going through Diet Coke withdrawals, Laney is barely hanging on. But when she realizes her summer crush is untouchably uncrushable in the real world, she has to start asking herself some serious questions. Can camp cool possibly translate to cool cool?

Sleepaway camp might just turn this city girl’s world upside down.

Find out more.

Noooooooooot sure if I'd LOVE this based on the premise, but the cover is pretty.

I've been to some BAAAD summer camps. This could be really good if it is as funny as her last book.

That is a cool cover! :)

I think it sounds really neat. Plus, I agree with you about the cover!

Amee said...

I agree. Love the cover, not so fond of the plot. It has potential though. I'd be willing to pick it up if it gets good reviews.

Oh, I really want to read this! The cover is adorable. That candy really makes me hungry! This is definitely going to be my next Waiting on Wednesday, I think... (:

The cover makes me cringe; why are the s'more makings just thrown all over the dirt?

I take my candy seriously, what can I say? :D

The cover is pretty and it makes me pretty hungry, though I don't know how I feel about eating s'mores that have touched the ground!
