Waiting on Wednesday ~ Camp Sylvania by Julie Murphy

Waiting on Wednesday ~ Camp Sylvania by Julie Murphy

Hi hi!

A happy welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday~ Whoo we are halfway through the week! does a small shimmy

This week a book that I am very hyped about (well, OK, I am hyped about so many books, haha) and a book perfect for June! A book about a spooooooooky things happening at a summercamp/fat camp. And maybe some bloody things as well if I have to go by this part of the blurb: “. But the campers are also encouraged to donate blood—at their age! The cafeteria serves only red foods and the oddly specific rules change every day.” Which sounds very sus to me! I am very curious about when things really get spooky and I cannot wait to find out what is going on and if the ghost will also make an appearance~

I am a bit on the fence about the fat camp stuff, especially this part: “There are the humiliating weigh-ins and grueling workouts, as expected.” I do hope that it isn’t too much and also has positivity in it!

Now I just need to wait until the book comes out, which kind of depends if I will go for a hardcover or wait for the paperback~

Camp Sylvania  Julie Murphy, Summer Camp, Weight, Girls, Moon, Spooky, Vampires, Ghosts, Children's BooksFrom the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin’ and Dear Sweet Pea comes a hilarious and spooky middle grade summer-camp story that takes a bite out of fat camp.

Magnolia “Maggie” Hagen is determined to be in the spotlight…if she can just get over her stage fright. This summer, though, she has big plans to finally attend Camp Rising Star, the famous performing arts camp she’s been dying to go to for three whole summers.

But on the last day of school, her parents break the news: Maggie isn’t going to Camp Rising Star. She’s being shipped off to fat camp—and not just any fat camp. She’s going to Camp Sylvania, run by world-famous wellness influencer Sylvia Sylvania, who is known for her soon-to-be patented Scarlet Diet.

When Maggie arrives at camp, things are…weird. There are the humiliating weigh-ins and grueling workouts, as expected. But the campers are also encouraged to donate blood—at their age! The cafeteria serves only red foods and the oddly specific rules change every day. There are even rumors of a camp ghost.

Despite these horrors, Maggie makes friends and starts to actually enjoy herself. There are even tryouts for a camp production of The Music Man! This place might not be so bad…until campers start going missing and suspicious things begin happening—especially after dark.

The camp ghost might be the least scary thing about this place….
