Summary: It’s her mother’s dream come true, but it’s Gen’s nightmare. A summer at living history camp where the visitors must live like pioneers of the 1890s! How can she possibly make it through the summer without electricity, plumbing, and an iPod? Well, cute, fellow camper Caleb might help as well as the cell phone she’s snuck in!
Thoughts: I didn’t expect to like this book nearly as much as I did! What a fun treat it turned out to be. The premise is original and actually quite believable. I really liked Gen and her family; their reaction to the entire experience was realistic and entertaining. The novel is full of humor, romance, and lots of plot twists & turns.
