Overview
I hate camp. I just hate it. I wish I didn't. But I do. Being here is worse than bug juice on a burger. Or homework on Thanksgiving. Or water seeping into my shoes.

In this sequel to Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie, Eleanor is off to summer camp. At first she's excited, but when she gets there she finds bugs, no electricity, and terrible food. And worst of all: swim class, where she just can't seem to keep up with the other campers. But as the days go by, Eleanor realizes that life is full of special surprises--even after some belly flops.

Praise for Like Bug Juice on a Burger
"Eleanor doesn't just survive, she grows...Readers will celebrate and look forward to more."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Sternberg gets all of the details exactly right, from the "orange, oozing sloppy joes" to the frustrations of trying to swim in a life jacket. susan dove lempke."
--The HornBook

"This is a really sweet novel in verse and a good sequel to Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie (Abrams, 2011), though it works fine as a stand-alone."
--School Library Journal

"Eleanor's tentative yet heartfelt voice comes through as clearly as in the first volume, with the short, ragged-right-margin lines as approachable as her personality. Sternberg is particularly deft at leaving young-reader-sized room for interpretation and extrapolation."
--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This sequel to Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie (2011) is just as endearing and wise, illustrating how small triumphs can help children survive what, at the time, seems an insurmountable trial."
--Booklist
