“Decided to pick the book up and skim through while waiting for my bro to get out of the bathroom. I knew I couldn't start reading it because I have to be up at 6:30 and it was already super late.. So, just a skim.
Almost an hour later (at almost 2 a.m.)... yeah. Do not pick it up if you have stuff to do - or sleep to catch. You will not be putting it down 'til it's over.
I'ts not the best written book ever, but it's fun, interesting, the main character is realistic and likeable, and you keep wanting to see what's going to happen next. It's not badly written or anything, but it's for teens. Low-ish reading level, pop culture references, etc. And still smart, funny, and awesome.
And now it is SO bedtime. XD”

“Imagine being a teenager, looking forward to summer vacation and soccer camp. Now how would you feel if you found out that this summer was going to be much different. This year you will be going to a family frontier camp. A camp that takes you back to 1890, and forces you to live that way all summer. The only saving grace is the cute boy, Caleb, that is staying in a cabin nearby.
Gen is furious at her parents for dragging her to frontier camp this summer. She has to weed corn, milk cows, and wash her clothes by hand. And worst of all she is missing her friends and soccer camp. But all is not a total lost as she has managed to sneak a cell phone in and sends regular text updates to her friends. All this backfires one day when her texts end up on her friend's blog for the whole world to read.
A quick and entertaining read that enjoyed. Reading about the antics of the various teenagers and children that are attending the frontier camp are fun and accurately show how I would have handled being cut off from civilization for two and a half months. I was able to appreciate all the main characters, even the ones I didn't like, and the background characters were developed to just the right level to contribute what they needed to the story. However, the style and conflicts were sometimes a bit predictable.
