Summer camp is more fun when you have Friends for Keeps!

It's Ida May's first time at sleepaway camp, and her two BFFs, popular Stacey and highly organized Jenna, are also coming along. But when they arrive at camp, their bunkmate is the last person Ida expected to ever see again: Elizabeth Evans, her last best friend who moved away before the start of this series. Ida was heartbroken when Liz didn't answer her letters, and now Liz won't even apologize. All the other girls are ready to welcome Liz back, but Ida just can't be the peacemaker this time. Not until she and Liz talk.

Chockablock with fourth-grade wisdom, laughter, jealousies--and apologies--this conclusion to the series is a must read for all Ida May fans.

JULIE BOWE grew up in Luck, Wisconsin. Actually she grew up "out of Luck"--about a mile and half away. She is the author of the companion novel, My Last Best Friend, which is perfect "for readers who have graduated from sara Pennypacker's 'Clementine' stories, Barbara Park's 'Junie B. Jones' series, and Megan McDonald's 'Judy Moody' books," according to School Library Journal. She knows how to strum a guitar, play a really good game of foosball, and count to three in Danish (en, to, tre!). Plus, she has seen a real bog person, met Dr. Suess, and knows exactly what to do with an æbleskiver. She lives in Mondovi, Wisconsin.
