My Review / My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was such a fun and refreshing book. I am a camping girl and I totally understand this story which makes me really happy.

Three girls decide to go on a weekend camping trip. The three days that they spend there are full of challenges, mostly because Sophie hates camping. Add to the story a good-looking man and the story gets even more interesting.

This book was so easy to read that in a few days I was done with it. But that is not a bad thing, it`s been quite long that I didn’t flip the pages of a book with so much joy.

My Review/ My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t think that I can find many words to describe this book. It is simply heartbreaking and sad but at the same time is showing the resilience that a human being is capable off. Even after reading and seeing movies about the concentration camps, it is still hard to read about it and all the suffering people had to go through.
