Agnes Parker...Happy Camper?
Title: Agnes Parker...Happy Camper?
Author: Kathleen O'Dell
Science camp brings pranks, fun, rivalries, and a new and somewhat unsettling view of a longtime best friend.
The first thing Agnes and her best friend Prejean learn at science camp is that they won’t be sharing the same cabin. Being apart gives Agnes a different perspective, and a few worries, about what others think of her longtime friend. Everyone seems to be going on and on about how beautiful Prejean is. A beauty queen? What if Prejean starts acting like one?
Soil studies, camp pranks, and a weird bunkmate all play a role in this funny, insightful story of the everyday casualties and payoffs of growing up.
