What a wonderful book that appeals to multiple age

If you could sum up The Secret of Camp Whispering Pines in three words, what would they be?

Friendship, adventure, fun

What did you like best about this story?

What a wonderful book with an appeal for multiple age groups. My son and I both thoroughly enjoyed our second foray into the adventures of Sam and Ally.
The girls go to summer camp, they meet new friends, learn new songs and have a great adventure! I love the deeper messages in this book. how they don't want to judge someone in the first ten minutes of camp and end up friending a friendless girl. A shared love of reading brings in another friend and kindness alone earns the next. Most importantly well chosen friends matter. Those who are honest and kind and try hard because you cannot do everything by yourself.
While I have never been to a summer camp I live in the mountains and can perfectly picture the raccoons finding a snack, the chill of the lake water and the peace and beauty of riding up a trail.
We cannot wait to read the next installment! Audible doesn't have it so I'm going to get a hard copy. It will take us a little longer to read it but I'm sure we will both enjoy it tremendously.

What does Tara Ellis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I didn't realize she read the book! As the author she would be able to bring all of the inflections that she imagined when she wrote it. She does a great job, the characters come alive and the scenes play out through your head.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Jason isn't here! lol

Any additional comments?

All joking aside these are great books and I'm disappointed that Audible doesn't have the rest of the series.

Sam and Ally, Round Two of the Duo Sleuths

In true serial stand alone mystery sets (the Bobbsey Twins, Trixie Belden, Nancy Drew), book 2 is a direct opposite to the previous book. In Camp Whispering Pines, the strict adult figure had a closer, if not crooked, eye on Sam and Ellie. The leniency of a flexible summer schedule to explore and solve a mystery is a bygone and the girls are growing and maturing as they’ve aged a year since we met them.
I thoroughly enjoyed the new world building, as the setting is different, yet still vibrant. I’ve never been to summer camp, but the book brings back the euphoria a campy feel (campfires and bigfoot) and vast personality clashes and meshes.
The series also grows as we watch the teens interact with others their age.
Ms Ellis is an engaging narrator for her books!
I’m so excited to collect these audiobooks and share them with my granddaughters! Keep them coming!
In the meantime, I’m ready and eager to explore her books for an older audience, too.
