Rating: 4

-Ada, Grade 4



“I think this book was hilarious. It is about a Russian girl who moved to America when she was 5, and all her American friends go to summer camp. One day she finds out about a Russian summer camp, and she really wants to go but later she finds out that it’s not what she thought it would be. I think this book would be good for kids age 10 & up.

“I like this book because is shows that you can fall soooo far behind your school work, and you can still catch up. I like this book because you can read about this girl who likes to make movies, but she has fallen so far behind in her schoolwork that she might not pass 8th grade!”
