Suspicion fell on Ian Wainscott, who is Friday’s rival and who is also in love with her desperately. There is the issue of a new vice principal and his own questionable behavior. It is pretty hard to take anybody seriously when he is wearing tie-dyed shirts, right?

It is going to be a dangerous term, between both them and Ian. Will Friday be able to repair the friendship she has with Ian, restore her excellent life-school balance, and work out who it is that is committing acts of vandalism around Highcrest? Nobody ever said that high school would be easy.

On her way back to school, the Headmaster has got a treat in store. It is a four-week camp for kids to learn all about wilderness survival skills. ‘Camp Courage’, as it is called, is much worse than Friday thought. All her book smarts are not much help when she has to chop wood, latrines to dig, and potatoes to peel.

Will Friday debunk the legend about the camp ghost, survive the great outdoors, and make it back to Highcrest Academy alive? Only a compass and time will tell.

This excellent book has a lot of humor and a outstanding plot to it. Readers felt themselves on the edge of their seat the entire time they were reading it.
