Summary:  The summer of her dreams is about to get a reality check.

They said it couldn't be done, but geeky sophomore Lauren Carlson transformed herself into a popular girl after moving to a new school halfway across the country. Amazing what losing her braces and going out for cheerleading will do. Only trouble is, the popular crowd is wearing on Lauren's nerves and she can't wait to return to summer camp where she's valued for her brain instead of her handsprings. She misses her old friends and most of all, her long time camp-only boyfriend, Seth. This year she intends to upgrade their relationship to year-round status once she's broken up with her new, jock boyfriend, Matt. He doesn't even begin to know the real her, a girl fascinated by the night sky who dreams of discovering new planets and galaxies.

But Matt isn't giving her up without a fight. As he makes his case to stay together, Lauren begins to realize his feelings run deeper than she ever would have guessed. What if the guy she thought she was meant to be with forever isn't really The One? Returning to Camp Juniper Point was supposed to ground her uprooted life, but she's more adrift than ever. Everything feels different and soon Lauren's friends are turning on her and both guys question what she really wants. As summer tensions escalate, Lauren wonders if she's changed more than she thought. Will her first big discovery be herself?

My Thoughts: This was such a cute novel! We are once again introduced to Lauren who stole my heart in Camp Kiss. She’s spent the last two summers as Seth’s girlfriend and the last year at school as Matt’s girlfriend. She’s been questioning her relationship with Matt, so here's her chance to go back to camp and be with Seth again. She plans to make a clean break from Matt. Lauren has really changed. She’s not so nerdy anymore. She’s gained more confidence, lost her braces and done a complete turnaround. But in her heart, she’s still a nerd.

Matt has his own set of problems though so he throws a big surprise at Lauren, and she figures out she won’t be attending camp alone this year. CRAP! CRAP! CRAP!

Lauren has such a big heart. While Matt is going through such major life changes she can’t bear the thought of breaking his heart.

I’m still torn between both Seth and Matt. I liked them both for their own reasons. I liked her relationship with them both throughout this summer. I liked seeing her interact with them and enjoyed seeing how much she grew.

I also liked seeing her camp friends again. They always make me laugh and are such a fun group of friends. I liked getting to know her family again too.

This novel was right up my alley. It had romance, summer camp, and a whole lot of fun. I really wasn't sure who she was going to end up with at the end of the novel but I’m ok with the choice. I would have probably liked it either way so not a let down. This was a nice read for me! I loved it so much! Adorable, sincere, and awesome!

Overall: Perfect summer read! Lots of fun, romance, family, friends, perfect story! Made me want to go swimming or sit by a fire and roast marshmallows! Loved this one!

Cover: So cute! Love it! Love how they are just laying down hanging out. Very very adorable.
