Awesome Book For Anyone!

Review by Alma

I really liked this book because it’s a book about a girl named Sydney (obviously) who ends up switching summer camps with her best friend, Maggie. Maggie and Sydney are both really fun, great characters. Sydney is a tall girl with a mom who’s expecting a baby who doesn’t like public speaking at all and there’s Maggie, who’s average height with an older brother and loves to dance. There are lots of twists and turns, there were parts where I cringed, like one time you think that something happened, when really something else did (I’m trying not to give spoilers), but all in all I think anyone from age 8 to age 12, would find this book a great read.

Do something you love - or risk the trouble -- AMAZING BOOK!!!

Review by BusDriverBuggie5

Sydney is waiting for the summer of her life - or the summer of doom. Sydney quickly finds out her summer's tables have turned. Sydney and her BFF, Maggie, have to now take classes that they hate at a community center. How bad can it get? So the girls decide to play their cards. Both of them change classes under each others names. But with revealing new friends, hidden identities, and keeping their secret, is switching places all that worth it?? This book is an absolute page turner and gets better by the page! Seriously, anybody who picks it up will never be able to put it back down! Recommended for all the book lovers :), friends, siblings, and anybody who just wants a classic page turner and thriller! Nothing is better than curling up with this book! 5 stars screams this book loud and proud!
