My personal Rating-
{Possibly the highest rating for a single book for all ages in BFCG history!}
Ohmygoodness! I just adore this series! Rereading “Camp Club Girls & the Mystery at Discovery Lake” (which is a mouth-full, BTW. ;) ) brought back such great memories—like that this was the first e-book I had ever read—or sharing this series with a girlie I babysit and her loving them! (Love you, S!)
Trying to find this series is getting harder and harder as the publisher has pulled these books and are now out of print. :( If you can get a copy of this series, do! It’s a BFCG recommended series!

See y’all Tomorrow with another Pre-Teen Week review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
