Can the most ordinary girl in the world fit in at Camp Famous? Abby is about to find out in this exciting new read from author Jennifer Blecher!

11- year-old Abby Herman has always struggled to find her place. She’s great at observing what all the other kids are up to, but not-so-great at understanding how to fit in herself. She always seems to be on the sidelines, feeling left behind by her classmates who have all found where they belong. All she’s ever wanted is a best friend, and this summer, it seems like she might finally have her chance to find one!

After an upsetting cartwheel incident at school and a mysterious meeting with her teacher, Abby’s parents have finally agreed to do something she’s been begging them to do for years – let her go to sleepaway camp. With a packed duffel bag and her journal by her side, Abby is eager but nervous to board the plane and start her summer. But what she doesn’t know is that her parents are sending her to Camp Famous – an elite destination exclusively for famous kids trying to escape the spotlight, and her life will never be the same.
