CHIGGERS is a very enjoyable, quick read.

Abby can't wait to go back to summer camp to hang out with her older friend, Rose. But this year Rose comes back to camp as a cabin assistant and doesn't seem to have any time for Abby. Then Shasta arrives. She is very different and Abby thinks she is kind of cool. Then comes the problem -- none of the other girls like her. They think she is weird and fake.

Abby then needs to decide how to balance her two groups of friends, maybe a new boyfriend, and how to feel okay when Rose seems to not be with her.

Growing up is hard to do! I enjoyed this book very much and it was fun to read a graphic novel. I believe that many kids and young adults will like to read this type of medium. I would like to read more. My only complaint is that sometimes I mixed up the characters, but that may be because I'm not a picture reader -- but if I read more I may get better at it! Thank you, Hope Larson!
