Special Anniversary Edition. Bestselling Jacqueline Wilson’s classic How to Survive Summer Camp is out in a brand new edition for a new generation of readers. It brilliantly and hilariously captures the dramatic intensity of living 24/7 with your peers. Stella is dreading going to Evergreen. As far as she’s concerned, she’s being dumped there so that her mum and new husband can enjoy a honeymoon without her. And her new haircut doesn’t help…Things get off to a bad start when Stella is mistaken for a boy, then her home mates are ghastly. What else can go wrong? Just about everything but, in the end, Stella knows she’s had the time of her life!

Synopsis

How To Survive Summer Camp by Jacqueline Wilson

Especially when she finds out she's expected to learn to swim - the one thing her mum promised she wouldn't have to do. She's determined not to enjoy herself and settles down for a nightmare summer.

According to a recent Mori poll, Jacqueline was voted English children favourite children’s author. She has sold millions of books and in the UK alone the total stands at over 25 million!
