Publisher's Summary

According to sixteen-year-old Zander Osborne, nowhere is an actual place - and she's just fine there. But her parents insist that she get out of her head - and her home state - and attend Camp Padua, a summer camp for at-risk teens.
Zander does not fit in - or so she thinks. She has only one word for her fellow campers: crazy. In fact, the whole camp population exists somewhere between disaster and diagnosis. There's her cabinmate Cassie, a self-described manic-depressive-bipolar-anorexic. Grover Cleveland (yes, like the president), a cute but confrontational boy who expects to be schizophrenic someday, odds being what they are. And Bek, a charmingly confounding pathological liar.
But amid group "share-apy" sessions and forbidden late-night outings, unlikely friendships form, and as the Michigan summer heats up, the four teens begin to reveal their tragic secrets. Zander finds herself inextricably drawn to Grover's earnest charms, and she begins to wonder if she could be happy. But first she must come completely unraveled to have any hope of putting herself back together again.

A Little Juvenile, but still a good Listen

We found the content to be slightly juvenile in a sense; however, the meaning of the story was powerful and relatable. I like the narrator of the story. She used different voices for each character and seemed to have interest in the story. I wouldn't listen to the audiobook again, but I would recommend it to anyone who plans to send their kids to camp or therapy. -Brad

I recommend this book.

An easy-to-relate-to group of troubled teens try to figure out who they are and what they want from family, life, friendships, and each other at a summer camp for at-risk teens.

The narration is great, the characters well developed, and the subject matter is deep, while still being funny, raw, and honest.

I highly recommend.
