I think that BR Myers is stalking me…
Haha, just kidding (I think?) but I did read her adorable book a few months ago called Girl on the Run. Which I happened to pick up by chance, because it was near Tyler Oakley’s Binge book in Chapters (which I also picked up), and I liked the look of the cover.
Once I turned it over and read the synopsis, I knew I had to have it. It was a book about running AND camp!!! Two of my favourite things!!
So I brought it home and started reading it, it was so much fun (and also a little unsettling, but I’ll get into that in a moment).
It’s a YA novel about a 17 year old girl who has given up running after her father’s death, she heads to summer camp to try to get her life back on track (peh. heh. heh. unintentional pun, but I like it and now I’m proud of it!)
When I started reading it I was reminded of the Sweet Valley High books I used to read when I was young, it was a fun read and I finished it by the end of the evening.
There were a couple of references in the book that made me say ‘YES, this author totally gets me, we should be friends”.
And then there were a few story points that made me think “man, this camp is SKETCHY!”
Let’s get into it, shall we?
