Summer has finally arrived and fifteen-year-old Harper McCallister intends to spend her days at the mall shopping or by the pool at her country club. But after receiving her latest heart-stopping credit card bill, Harper's parents makes other plans, and ship her off to camp.
Suddenly, the clueless yet ever-popular Harper is the new girl at the bottom of a social ladder she can't climb in wedge sandals and expensive clothes. She seems to be winning over super-cute camp Lifer Ethan, though, and if she can manage to make a few friends--and stay out of trouble--she just might find a whole new summer state of mind.
A fresh and funny summer-camp companion novel to Jen Calonita's hitSleepaway Girls.
Jen Calonita would never have fought her parents on going to sleepaway camp. She did, however, try to get out of a school camping trip for fear of spiders crawling into her sleeping bag. When she isn't writing, the author of the Secrets of My Hollywood Life and the Belles series can be found at the beach or floating in the pool. She encourages you to share your summer stories with her online at www.jencalonitaonline.com or on Twitter @Jencalonita.Praise for Summer State of Mind:
...Readers will respond to how the newly rich Harper struggles with identity issues...The book illustrates some important lessons: money doesn't buy true friends; good friends are harder to come by, and they can only be bought with authentic and meaningful nurturing. Booklist
The perfect summertime read! It's sweet, funny, and made me want to head to camp immediately. Katie Finn, author of the Top 8 series andBroken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend
