Kelly Hunter ably narrates this story of a girl's first extended time away from home. She demonstrates versatility, portraying the summer campers, counselors, and headmaster with energy and drama. Confusion reigns when all the campers talk in quick succession, but a roomful of chattering girls can be a challenge to sort out! Hunter's finest moment takes place during the hysteria of the youngest camper's stuffed animal falling into the pond. Hunter's British accent adds style to the production, befitting spoiled, wealthy campers and the posh camp setting. Although the story is sad in spots, the children eventually bond and support each other in their loneliness. A.G.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
