Justin is going to start fourth grade—but first, he has to survive the summer. He “gets” to go to camp every day on a bus. He “gets” to experience all sorts of new things: Bugs. Mess hall food. Flip-flops (they hurt the space between his toes and they’re hard to walk in). And (gulp!) swimming.This book is about a kid named Justin Case and his life in the summer. Justin is a weird kid. He usually goes to a science camp, but he wants to go to a camp called Camp Goldenbrook, which is all about sports. When he gets there, he finds out he is no good at sports, but he keeps trying.
Justin’s little sister, Elizabeth, seems to deal with camp just fine. So do his friends. Justin is trying very hard not to be a worried kid anymore, especially when it comes to making friends at camp, including a new kid who is kind of . . . rough. After all, Justin is going to be in fourth grade. It’s time to be brave. Right?
I really liked this book a lot. It is a funny book and I liked how he keeps trying. It's really easy for me to read, too, which is awesome. This is one of my favorite books to read on my own. I recommend this book to people who like reading about normal life, but really funny ones!
You don't have to have read the first Justin Case book to read this one, but you want to!! Trust me! Here's my review of Justin Case: School, Drool, and Other Daily Disasters
