When their families take a joint vacation to the Poconos, Amber Brown and her best friend (usually), Justin, swim, explore, and play delightedly until a fateful cannonball into the pool. Amber contemplates revenge at the sleep-out with the dads, but it can be hard to stay mad at Justin. Hot dogs, roasted marshmallows, and ghost stories all go well until. . . who is making noise outside the tent? Dana Lubotsky creates the personality of exuberant Amber and brings a freshness to the story. Amber's delights and hurts become real to the listener. Lubotsky adds just the right amount of whine for Justin's brother, Danny, and gruffness for the fathers. Nighttime sound effects and background music complete the recording. A.R.
