It’s oV to camp for Winnie: sunny days of rock climbing, cascading down slippery falls, Xoating in a cool lakeand meeting a fascinating new friend.
Winnie can’t remember ever having more fun.
But in the midst of the excitement, Winnie discovers how complicated life can get too as she watches one fib tumble mysteriously and rapidly to the next not-so-little lie.
Readers will once again find a friend in Winifred Fletcher in this early chapter book, written with authenticity and illustrated with charming line drawings.
In this sequel to Winnie (Dancing) on Her Own (2001), motherless Winnie goes to summer camp with her two best friends.
She has lots of fun--rock climbing, swimming, going to art class, making a new friend--but things become uncomfortable after she tells a lie and then can't stop lying.
Not only does she say her mother is alive, she also claims Mom is a famous artist.
As in the first book, the resolution is a little too easy.
There's no rejection or jeering from her friends or anger from Dad when she's found out.
But young readers will find a lot to talk about; they'll recognize that Winnie's lie is also a wish, and that camp is the kind of place where a kid can try to reinvent herself and become someone new for a while.
Is lying the same as not telling? Geis' occasional, small pencil drawings show the girls and counselors enjoying the camp rituals and making friends.

About the Author
Jennifer Richard Jacobson's favorite camp memory is of canoeing to a river island, where she and her paddling friends built a campfire and slept out under the stars until dawn.
Jennifer lives with her husband and two children in Cumberland, Maine, where they like to sing silly camp songs.
This gentle chapter book highlights the challenges and delights of summer camp, where, as Winnie discovers, "you can be someone else for a while." Laura Hamilton's low-key narration explores the consequences of reinventing oneself.
For example, Winnie capriciously decides to have her deceased mother become a famous--living--artist.
Hamilton has a knack for creating a large and appealing cast of characters that includes kids and grown-ups alike.
She invites listeners of all ages to consider whether "not telling" is the same as lying.
Imbuing the production with a genuine summer camp ambiance, Hamilton shares chants, camp songs, and counselor names (like Spunky, Dolphin, and Picasso) that ring true to the ear.
