Amazon Description: The Camp Kiss That Started It All....
Lauren Carlson, a fourteen-year-old expert on the cosmos, superheroes, and science fiction trivia has a crush on her longtime camp friend, Seth. Last summer she'd dreamed about upgrading their relationship to BF/GF status and this year she has a plan... if only her well-meaning cabin mates wouldn't interfere before she's ready. She hasn't even adjusted to her new braces yet, let alone imagined kissing Seth with them. When a dare pushes her out of her comfort zone, will she and Seth rocket out of the friendzone at last? There's only one way to find out....
This is the prequel novella for CAMP BOYFRIEND.
My Review: I stumbled upon Camp Boyfriend and then noticed that there was a prequel. I decided to read it first and in a way, I wish that I wouldn't have, simply because I got too involved in the story.
I could relate to Lauren. When I was 14, I had big dreams of going to space. I loved to watch a movie called SpaceCamp over and over and over again. I was also about that age when I discovered that boys were kind of cute. I felt kind of awkward at that age--not really a girl, yet not really a woman. Unlike Lauren, I didn't have big dreams of snagging a boyfriend and having a first kiss, but her feelings were still very easy to understand.
I really liked Seth. He seemed so grown up and mature, yet he was worried about things in his life too and had to deal with insecurities, just like any other teen.
I never went to a summer camp like this one and the movie The Parent Trap totally convinced me that I was missing out. I can't say if this is what a summer camp is really like or not, but it sure fits the one I imagined in my mind.
Content: kissing; talk of hooking up; some swearing.
