Giveaway: CAMP by Elaine Wolf

  Today's giveaway is CAMP by Elaine Wolf. This is my favorite book that I have read this year. I strongly recommend it for anyone and everyone. If I had the choice, I would go on and on about this book. In fact, if you are a regular follower, you've heard me go on and on...and on...about this book. This is one of those books that I want to share with everyone and wish I could hand out like candy.

    Every secret has a price.For most girls, sleepaway camp is great fun. But for Amy Becker, it's a nightmare. Amy, whose home life is in turmoil, is sent to Camp Takawanda for Girls for the first time as a teenager. Although Amy swears she hates her German-immigrant mother, who is unduly harsh with Amy's autistic younger brother, Amy is less than thrilled about going to camp. At Takawanda she is subjected to a humiliating "initiation" and relentless bullying by the ringleader of the senior campers. As she struggles to stop the mean girls from tormenting her, Amy becomes more confident. Then a cousin reveals dark secrets about Amy's mother's past, which sets in motion a tragic event that changes Amy and her family forever.Camp is a compelling coming-of-age novel about bullying, mothers and daughters, and the collateral damage of family secrets. It will resonate with a wide teenage readership. Camp will be a strong addition to school recommended reading and summer reading lists, and it is appropriate for anti-bullying programs. Mostly, though, Camp is a mother-daughter story for mothers and daughters to share.

  1. I like to speak to the kids in our neighborhood about the troubles of bullying that affected me when I was a child.

  2. Speaking to your siblings about it to raise awareness. Not all younger children understand it.

  3. Speaking about it to younger ones, now it's starting even with really young one because they copy what they see but nobody has told them it's bad

  4. Well this is a nice way of promoting bullying awareness. We don't have this in my country. But we sure need it. We must open our eyes and ears to the cries of the helpless...

  5. Talking about bullying openly. Being aware of your own actions. SEt the BEST example.

  6. Tell your kids about it. Tell them bullying is wrong and they should not do it.

  7. Well we are having a Group discussion on bullying in our college.Being a senior this year I am just going to help students who are facing such problems.

    Like Diana, I don't have anything like this in my country. But in the spirit of raising awareness anyway, I'd recommend to my book club that this month's novel be something having to do with bullying. It would be extra interesting if it were a book already familiar to us (such as The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier) that we could reread from this new angle.
