Be Prepared Reviews

    Things I like about this book:

    expressiveness of the art, style of the art

    Things I struggled with in this book:

    everything

    Somehow the narrative just doesn't come together in a way that I could make sense of. It was chaotic, distractingly episodic, worrisome, strange. Vera goes through all this horrible stuff, and it's painful to witness, but I don't really feel like there's a reason I am going through it with her. Because of the expressive art, I feel happy when she's happy, and worried when she's

    I love graphic novels; I bought this one for my girls to read, since I am sending to what I hope is a wonderful camp this summer.

    Summer Camp, Russian Culture, and Belonging

    Having adored Anya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol, I was keen on checking out her spin with this gripping and hilarious middle-grade summer camp memoir.

    All Vera wants to do is fit in—but that’s not easy for a Russian girl in the suburbs. Her friends live in fancy houses and their parents can afford to send them to the best summer camps. Vera’s single mother can’t afford that sort of luxury, but there's one summer camp in her price range—Russian summer camp.

    This is an easy recommendation for those that can't get enough Raina Telgemeier, Shannon Hale or Jennifer L. Holm. What makes this book stand apart is its drawings and use of color - the shades of green and not much else made you feel like you were right there with Vera at camp in the middle of nowhere. A quick and delightful read.

    When I was a child, I lived in a well-to-do neighborhood, and had well-to-do neighbors, and classmates. This was in the days when rich people still sent their kids to public schools. They were the kids, that in high school had their own cards, and went on ski trips, and to Summer camp every year.

    While, I, like Vera in this story, had to make to with what we had, and couldn’t afford to do any of the things that my friends were doing. Certainly not Summer camp.

    And Vera has the added problem of be

    A sweet, poignant, funny middle-grade summer camp graphic memoir .

  • Aliza Werner

    Love this autobiographical graphic novel of young Vera going to Russian camp. I was excited to have my 3rd graders grab it, but there a few parts that take this one up to a true middle grade read (name calling: "tit head", older campers caught making out, period-stained undies flying from the flagpole). Many kids will relate to the challenges of friendships and navigating new situations.

    Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy of this in exchange for my honest review!

    Everyone Vera knows gets to go away to summer camp every year. All Vera wants is to be like the other kids in her neighbourhood. Then, one summer, her mother agrees to send her to ORRA, a Russian summer camp for children just like her! Upon arriving, Vera quickly realizes that she is not going to enjoy her time
