Chiggers

By: Hope Larson

Abby is back at camp, but this year things are difficult. Her friend Rose is busy helping the counselors, and Abby's first bunkmate gets sent home with chiggers. Her new bunkmate, Shasta, seems great-she's pretty and fun, and she likes the same books that Abby does. But Abby's other friends think Shasta is snobby and dishonest, and they can't stand her. Abby is caught in the middle, and when she begins spending time with Teal, a boy she has a crush on, things only get more complicated. Black-and-white art.
