The Camp Kiss That Started It All…
Lauren Carlson, a fourteen-year-old expert on the cosmos, superheroes, and science fiction trivia has a crush on her longtime camp friend, Seth. Last summer she’d dreamed about upgrading their relationship to BF/GF status and this year she has a plan… if only her well-meaning cabin mates wouldn’t interfere before she’s ready. She hasn’t even adjusted to her new braces yet, let alone imagined kissing Seth with them. When a dare pushes her out of her comfort zone, will she and Seth rocket out of the friendzone at last? There’s only one way to find out….
MY THOUGHTSI read Camp Boyfriend first, and the review for Camp Boyfriend will be posted soon too. I loved this little novella. It was so adorable. Then again, I like Lauren. I like Lauren, the geeky, space-fanatic, nerdy girl. I also like Seth. Seth is cute and I also loved him in Camp Boyfriend. I love almost all the characters. Hannah is very annoying, I really don't like Hannah. And then thinking that Camp Christmas is about Hannah. We'll see how that goes when I read it.
In this little novella, we follow 14-year-old Lauren, who is crushing on her camp friend, Seth. She is has been dreaming about upgrading their friendship and stepping out of the friend zone. She is still apprehensive about it all, she has just gotten braces and feels pretty insecure about herself.
The story has less than 100 pages I think, or a little more. It was free to download of the Spencer Hill contemporary website, which was awesome for me. And I read it in just a few hours. I really like the writing and the use of words in this novella. It was easy, fun and good to read. It was a nice read, especially when you were in the mood for something cute and funny. I'm at the moment definitely in such a mood, so I'm practically binge reading this entire series and I love it a lot.
The reason why I gave this novella 4 stars instead of 5 is because I don't know what to do anymore. I wanted them to be together you know. And Seth has problems, and I get that. But I just feel bad for Lauren. But then Lauren is a bitch sometimes too. I can't spoil this for everyone. Because you don't know what happens in Camp Boyfriend yet, but the feels. THE FEELS. Everyone is awesome, but annoying. I don't know what to think anymore. I'm so done, I don't want this series to ever end...
I highly recommend this novella to someone who wants to read the Camp Boyfriend series, as this is a prequel, but you can also read this as just a standalone. But I really think that if you read this, you would want to know more about Seth and Lauren's love story. And believe me, Camp Boyfriend will surprise you.
