5 Things To Know About: Crossing Over (Camp Rolling Hills #2)


* I received this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley.  All opinions are my own!

1.  It's summer again!  This book takes place the summer after Camp Rolling Hills took place.  All of the gang are back for another summer of arts & crafts and recreation and general togetherness. But everybody's a year older and now they're in new cabins with new counselors.

2.  I would say that this story has two main plots.  Melman is having an identity crisis because all she wants to do is play soccer but her friends are obsessed with boys and she might have her first crush.  Steinberg family wants him to spend his summer focusing on getting ready for his bar mitzvah when in actuality, all he can think about is Kiki 2.0. (the robot that he is building for the robot contest).

3.  It must be because they're getting older, but I liked that the boys cabin (Hamburger Hill) and the girls cabin (Faith Hill) got along better in this book.  I thought it was really funny when they were all hanging out at the lake.  Also when they had their SPOOKY campout at Camp Polio.

4.  Probably one of the funniest scenes for me is the robot contest, where Steinberg's robot takes a turn for the worse.  No spoilers!  Haha.  If you want to know what I'm talking about, you'll have to read the book yourself.  It was such an unfortunate incident but it made me smile.  Those are the kind of awkward mishaps that happen when you're twelve years old.

5.  I said this about the first book, and I'll say it again about the second.  I really enjoyed this book and it's exactly the kind of book I would have loved to read as a kid!  If you have your own children, younger siblings, or nieces and nephews, definitely check this book out for them (or you!).  It makes me feel nostalgic for summers as a kid. :)

Take care,
Marian

P.S.  There are going to be more books in the series, so yay!  That is excellent news.
