Product description

“My new T-shirt said I LOVE EVERGREEN ADVENTURE HOLIDAYS. My new T-shirt was a liar.”

Dumped at a grotty holiday camp while her mum’s off on a swanky honeymoon, Stella just knows she’s going to hate it. Being mistaken for a boy and having to share a dorm with snobby Louise and nasty Karen is just the start. They’re even going to make her learn to swim! Stella’s all ready to sulk through a nightmare summer. But however determined she is to hate it, the camp has some surprises in store… This special edition of Jacqueline Wilson’s classic summer story includes fantastic quizzes, yummy recipes and brilliant activities, plus new pictures by Nick Sharratt. It’s got everything you need to create your own cool summer camp – including survival tips!

    this book is a good book because it teaches you if something sounds bad and you didn’t like it you grow into liking it so don’t under estimate things.

    This book was an amazing story about Summer Camp. You go around the Camp with Stella; through the bad times and the good. Join her unusual but friendly, kind friends and, unfortunatly, the unkind bullies. 5 stars! I loved it! So anyone who havent read it READ IT!!!

    I really enjoyed, How to survive summer camp because I felt sorry the girl first as she had her hair cut really short and she was sent to the camp for the summer holidays. Though it was EXTRA funny when another girl’s donkey fell strait into cow poo!HA HA HA!
