It’s the summer of 2004 and Freddie Holtzman can’t wait to get to Camp Mason, a summer camp for eggheads or rather, gifted teens. He hopes to reconnect with Ginny Haig, a girl he met at camp last year. Freddie’s old friends, Logan and Monty, are there along with some new faces. He tries to win Ginny’s affection, but every time he tries to talk to her, he says-and does-nerdy things.
At Camp Mason, a science fair pits the eggheads against one another for the top prize of a five thousand dollar scholarship. But, when the projects go missing, friendships are put to the test, relationships get put on hold, and everyone’s a suspect. To make matters worse, the camp is haunted by young Billy Mason who died there decades ago. The boys are determined to solve the mystery of the ghost and the missing science projects.
Freddie’s quest to win the scholarship-and the girl of his dreams-are constantly in jeopardy. There are complications at every turn: the ghost, a creepy caretaker, Freddie’s high school nemesis, a cantankerous camp manager, and a saboteur all threaten his chance to win the prize and Ginny’s heart.
First of all I would like to thank the author, Larry Sweitzer, for the ARC and signed copy of this book!
Teens and adults who read this book will get a wonderful story to sit down and read. It features ghost stories, boys trying to get the girls to notice them, camping and great writing. I was so thrilled with this book! The only thing I didn’t like was how short it was! I was so wrapped up in reading this book that before I knew it, the story came to an end and it only took me about an hour. I so wanted this book to keep going even though I know that all books must come to an end.
This story has humor, young love, spooky ghost stories, and a story that will keep you glued to the last page! I can’t wait to see what the author comes up with next!
Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
