Released January 2010

If you have a young girl who likes mysteries and needs a book that is geared towards 8 to 12 year olds, the Camp Club Girls series should be a hit. It is a Christian book, but I think any young girl will enjoy the story within.

Alex, Bailey, Elizabeth, Kate, McKenzie and Sydney become roommates at a summer Bible camp. The girls form a strong friendship. Their camp stay becomes a juggling act as they maintain the camp schedule, battle a snobby girl who is determined to best them at every turn and hide a stray dog from their counselors.

This is only the beginning, however. The girls stumble onto a real mystery after hearing strange noises from an abandoned miniature golf course. Determined to find out why one counselor is determined to keep them away, the girls team up to do some sleuthing in their free time.

As as adult, I didn't find the mystery all that perplexing, but I'm pretty sure it will keep younger readers on their toes. In addition, there are some great lessons to be learned from the girl's antics and misunderstandings. Plus, the book's price is perfect for family's on a budget. I'd recommend this book for that inquisitive child.
