All’s fair in love and summertime prank wars
The last person Riya Johnson expected to run into at her new summer camp is Courtney Chastain—her childhood best friend and the girl who broke her heart after a secret, mind-blowing, life-altering kiss. She definitely didn’t expect to be sharing a bunk bed with her for four long weeks.
Courtney has what every girl wants—she’s beautiful, rich, and the object of every boy’s desire at Camp Pine Ridge. Too bad none of them make her feel an iota of what Riya’s kiss did all those years ago. But Courtney needs to uphold appearances at all costs—even if it means instigating an all-out prank war with Riya as her main target.
Neither girl can stop thinking about the other…but that doesn’t mean they can give up past hurts and take a chance on a future together.

★★★★★”I felt that this book just worked. There is no other way to describe it, there was angst but it made sense with the ages of the characters and I didn’t feel that it made them seem immature because they are 16 and 17 so any more maturity would have been unbelievable. I enjoyed this authors writing and sat up all night reading until I had finished.” –CJ13, Goodreads Reviewer

“It shares many themes with other similar books: first loves, discovering who you are, facing your fears, coming out, but it deals with them in a believable and engaging way. I liked all of the characters, and something I don’t feel often, I think their behavior was believable for their age.” –Rain, Goodreads Reviewer
