Johnny Heller's congenial reading adds appeal to Josh Wolk's affectionate memoir. Just before his wedding, 34-year-old Josh wonders--can you go home again? Home in this case is the Maine summer camp that engendered his best youthful memories. The Entertainment Weekly journalist decides to answer his own question by signing on as the camp's swim counselor for the season. Wolk's observations of the other counselors, the boys, the past, and the future are quirky, introspective, and hilarious. Heller brings a wise-guy exuberance to the narration as Counselor Josh hangs with his campers and enjoys bunk friendships, board games, archery, swimming, and 14-year-old-boy smut-talk until, finally, he concludes that looking back is OK, but moving ahead in who you are in the present is what it's all about.
