Meet Reese and Addie―two girls, one great friendship. It’s summer break! Reese is on her way to vacation at Camp Lake Shore with her family. When Reese meets a new friend, Addie, the two immediately connect and form a lasting friendship. Swimming, boating, laughing, and soaking up the sun are just a few highlights of their summer vacation. The girls become best friends. When their vacation comes to an end, Reese realizes she may never see Addie again. Determined to stay in touch forever, can Reese and Addie find a way to continue their friendship and share their adventures?
I truly found this story heart warming. We follow Reese and Addie who become best friends at Camp Lake Shore. They spend all their time together, having so much in common. When it comes time to leave they realize they won't see each other for a entire year! They decide to become pen pals and keep in touch.
Perfect book for younger readers. A short book with illustrations throughout will capture and hold the attention of the reader. I love the thought of snail mail. In today's day and age pen pals are almost obsolete, with the internet and all. When I was younger I moved from New York to New Mexico (1989) and I was pen pals with all of my cousins. So this book brought a nostalgic feeling to me. I love the pen pal pages you can cut out in the back. Such a nice touch. Overall, I think it's a great book and I hope that young girls everywhere can have a pen pal at least once in their lives.
Huge thanks to iRead Book Tours & Julie Thiessen for my gifted copy.
