To Night Owl From Dogfish is a progressive book by Holly Goldberg Sloan and Meg Wolitzer. Avery and Bett are two eleven year old girls who are not happy that their dads are dating, and do not want to be at summer camp together. After their parents break up though, the two are determined to get them back together.
For another title about summer camp, check out Drum Roll, Please by Lisa Bigelow. Melly is a drummer at band camp, but things are not going well. She is worried about her parents divorce, a strained friendship, boys, and worst of all, doubting her abilities.
If you can’t get enough of Meg Wolitizer, try The Fingertips of Duncan Dorfman. Three twelve year olds are vying to be the champion at a scrabble tournament. Who will win, and is there something more at stake?
