Ahh summer! Nothing beats the freedom from school time to chill and hang out with friends at the pool and the tennis courts. It is also the season for summer camp. Ten-year-old girls Kat, Tiff, Amy, and Hanna meet for the first time at Camp Cherokee. It will be a summer they'll never forget.
Kat is a sarcastic tomboy who rocks at sports. Tiff, an ultra spoiled rich girl, arrives in a limo and feels miffed that her parents have sent her to camp. Amy is a shy animal lover who has a secret she will need to share. Hanna, a bookworm and computer whiz, has a secret of her own.
The four girls are tossed together in the same cabin. At first, sparks fly as they struggle with their differences. But soon they begin to tolerate each other as they learn to overcome food fights, smelly outhouses, bed bugs, and being lost in the woods.
Are you a Kat, Tiff, Amy, or Hanna? Could you survive Camp Cherokee? Find out how these unlikely friends not only survive camp, but end up being best friends forever.
