Can You Say Catastrophe?

By Laurie B. Friedman, 1964-

April Sinclair just wants what any normal thirteen-year-old would want: to disown her parents and obnoxious little sisters; to escape to summer camp ASAP with her two best friends, Billy and Brynn; and to make a good impression on Matt Parker, the hot new boy next door.

Unfortunately, Matt witnesses April s utter humiliation at her birthday party. Then Billy kisses her. Just as April is trying to figure things out, her parents cancel her camp plans in lieu of a family RV trip. A summer of babysitting her sisters and re-bonding with her family isn t how she imagined life as a teenager. And it certainly won t help her straighten out her feelings about Billy or Matt. Is there any silver lining to a road trip in The Clunker with her family of misfits?

Summary: "April Sinclair would like to blame someone for her mostly miserable life, and since her parents won't take responsibility, she blames the stork. Her teenage years kick off with a humiliating 13th birthday party, where one of her younger sisters reveals April's crush and the other puts on a show of peeing behind a tree like a boy. April can't wait to disown her loony family for a few weeks of summer camp with her two best friends. Meanwhile, she gets her first two kisses--from two different boys--and isn't sure how she feels about either one. But she's sure how she feels (horrified) when her parents cancel her camp plans in lieu of a family RV trip. Is there any silver lining to her summer?"-- Provided by publisher.
