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.

"Secondary plots dealing with bullying and crushes provide the finishing touches to this believable and accessible tale of friendship-on-the-rocks, and well-rounded characters raise it a notch above the usual series fare. Preteens will gobble up this girl-friendly depiction of the world of early middle school and its ensuing changes.
A good choice for girls not quite ready to leave behind the innocence of childhood for the spills and thrills of adolescence." — Kirkus Reviews
