Kids’ Club Review by Molly Morgan: Be prepared

Be preparedBe prepared, Vera Brosgol

Vera cannot wait for O.R.R.A, a Russian camp where she will finally fit in. O.R.R.A is not what she expected. Can she learn to fit in or is she destined to a miserable four week camp torture? I really enjoyed this book because it was an interesting read. I think kids 9+ would enjoy this book.

Kids’ Club Review by Anna: Be prepared

Be preparedBe prepared, Vera Brosgol

This book is about a Russian girl called Vera who lives in America. One holiday Vera went to a camp called Oppa, which is for Russian children. Vera discovers she is not only a lot younger than the other girls but that there is no electricity, no proper toilets, and she has no friends. Will she cope? I liked this comic as it had a great plot, I read it twice. It was funny too.
