About Shana Gorian

Editorial Review The author's personal love for summer camp and her great German shepherd dog flows through the story loud and clear. The daily details so orderly laid out will make children hopeful for such a fun summer experience. This is a great bridge book that will carry young readers further into their literary journey. The theme is pertinent, the characters relatable, and the outcome substantial. It will carry a love for reading into a more personal focus, developing an interest for novels. A young girl accompanies her older brother for her first big sleep-away adventure at Camp Hickory Ridge. Timid and unsure, her brother comforts her with the assurance she will enjoy herself so much that she won't be able to wait until next year comes again. Many may fondly remember the growth, the development, and solidifying of our sense of self that came in those times of a peer society. Challenges, victories, even failures, that brought us home champions. Darleen Wohlfeil, Story Monsters Ink magazine, June 2016show more
