Be Instantly Transported to Sleep-Away Camp
Summer Sleep-Away is the tale of a young boy's first summer at sleep-away camp. Far from home, separated from his family and not knowing a soul, Mattie Kleinfeld is scared, homesick and cries himself to sleep. But soon the tears give way to new friends and fantastic adventures, as the book takes you along with Mattie, a fish-out-of water, that kids and grown ups alike can relate to.
Mattie goes hiking and fishing. He sails and swims and participates in team sports. But it is not the canoe trips or overnights that set this summer apart; it is not even his first girlfriend. It is a clue that he and his pals stumble upon that leads them to the adventure of a lifetime, to a vast treasure and to a window that sheds light on Mattie's unique background.
Summer Sleep Away is an enjoyable teen book for any time of year.
