What’s the basic story line?

Bean’s older sister gets to go to a summer camp called Girl Power 4-Ever, but Bean cannot join her because she is too young. So Bean and her best friend, Ivy, decide to create their own camp at the park. At Camp Flaming Arrow, Ivy and Bean are the counselors. They come up with all the activities and, of course, they make the rules.

Are the characters believable? Explain.

The characters are believable because they're two rambunctious 7-year-olds who just want to have fun, like any kid. They are funny, creative and a little wacky, at times. Ivy and Bean made me laugh through the entire book.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being best), how would you rate this book? Explain.

I would give this book a 10 because I love the characters. They have fun, bubbly personalities that make you want to keep reading.
