Foreword Review — Fall 2013
With an engaging voice, reluctant camper Cooper Wilder tells a story of environmental intrigue for outdoorsy middle-grade readers. As a summer camp owner herself, author Tamra Wight has young readers tasting the oozing s’mores, smelling the stench of maggot-riddled trash, and feeling the squishy mud between their toes with her descriptive language. Quirky characters and realistic dialogue will make this suspenseful eco-mystery a favorite summer read of any wildlife lover. Ages eight to twelve.
