This week we're celebrating the launch of Tera Lynn Childs' second novel GODDESS BOOTCAMP! I know you want to win your VERY OWN copy, so stay tuned as to how to win!
Here is the AMAZING cover to taunt your tastebuds a bit!
I really really wanted to go to camp as a kid. I read the Babysitters Club Summer Vacation SUPER special and I was bound and determined to go to a camp, live in cabins, make lanyards (even though I didn't know what those were) and get a makeover. I re-read this book at least 10 times and begged and pleaded with my parents to send me.
Did not happen. My parents were too paranoid to send me away somewhere, so they agreed on the next best thing: Day Camp!
I got to attend a really fun artsy day camp near my house for the entire summer. We got to pick things to "specialize" in. I picked one thing I was good at and two I was not:
LITERATURE! (I was good at this one).
That summer I read books that would go on to be some of my favorites:
The Witch of Blackbird Pond - amazing book about prejudice, fear, friendship and loyalty.
To Kill a Mockingbird - enough said!
The second thing I specialized in was, wait for it....DRAMA!
Yikes! What had I gotten myself into?
I'd never been on stage before much less in a play! When too many people look at me, I start to shake!
It all turned out fine though and I got to be an African Princess and wear a headdress and have no lines....NICE!
The third thing I picked was....ADVERTISING! (This was a pretty advanced camp for 10 year olds, I now realize). I learned all about how to market products and understand audiences. My product was tinted lip gloss and I got to put together a fun skit for my campaign.
Him: "So I can call you."
Me: "Why would you do that?"
Him: "To talk."
Me: "Oh. Well, okay, but you'll have to talk to my mother too."
He quickly lost interest in my phone number after that! So that's my camp experience! Has anyone had a "camp" romance they would want to share? How about books or movies about camp that you like? Leave a comment and you will be entered to win a copy of GODDESS BOOTCAMP!
Happy release week TLC!!!
