Like his employer, Entertainment Weekly, this is a book that is short on substance but good enough to flip through.

The idea of going back to camp at 34 certainly falls into the category of "Why didn't I think of that?" Wolk basically checked out of reality for a while, relives what appears to be a somewhat traumatic childhood, and then spends most of his time wondering why he did it and was it worth it. I finished it, but it wasn't exactly life-changing.

I love Josh's writing style, huge fan from Entertainment Weekly. this book is sweet. i went to summer camp a few times, nothing like the camp he went to as a kid, so i had a hard time relating to a lot of it, however the kids were so well done, i felt like i knew them! a very entertaining story, and I am very glad i read it.
