Four very different girls. Three short surf camp weeks. One lifetime-changing summer.
Ace, Georgie, Kia, and Micki, elite surfers all, are assigned to the Starfish Cabin. From the outside their lives may look great, but that is not how they feel. Edwina Wren effectively establishes the girls as distinct individuals, an important achievement in a story told through alternating chapters from each of their viewpoints as jealousy, insecurity, secrets, and lies are stripped away. The bickering turns to laughter and one’s enemy becomes the foe of all of them as girls who short weeks before were mostly strangers, end camp bonded as "sisters"..

I enjoy this book - the way each character had a voice and how they manage to show us each different girl and how they deveoped in the camp.
Also enjoy the reference of the aussie beach and surfing
