My personal Rating-
Kate is one of my favorite girls in the Camp Club Girls series, so I was happy to re-read her first book. Kate has fun tech gadgets that are interesting to read about, and this book was all about a mystery with a baseball player!

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

  1. Thank you for reviewing books for girls! I am thankful you go into detail about things that could be concerning for Christian families, which most secular book reviews conveniently don't bother mentioning. I have been silently following you for a short time now looking for some good reads for my 12 yr old. I thought it was about time I spoke up to express my THANKS! 😁

    1. Hello!

      Have a wonderfully Blessed week!
