Blog Tour-The Ghost, The Eggheads, and Baby Ruth's Piano
It’s the summer of 2004 and Freddie Holtzman can’t wait to get to Camp Mason, a summer camp for eggheads or rather, gifted teens. He hopes to reconnect with Ginny Haig, a girl he met at camp last year. Freddie’s old friends, Logan and Monty, are there along with some new faces. He tries to win Ginny’s affection, but every time he tries to talk to her, he says—and does—nerdy things. At Camp Mason, a science fair pits the eggheads against one another for the top prize of a five thousand dollar scholarship. But, when the projects go missing, friendships are put to the test, relationships get put on hold, and everyone’s a suspect. To make matters worse, the camp is haunted by young Billy Mason who died there decades ago.
This book was so very fun to read! I wasn't exactly sure what to expect from the book based on the title, but I was happily surprised. It took me a little under a day to read this story, which is very good for me! I was completely drawn into Freddie's story and kinda felt like I was at the camp too! The story was well written and never felt like a kid's book. This IS labeled as Children's Fiction but I think that even grown ups would like it! This is one of those books that I found myself hard pressed to find something wrong with it...Really the only thing I could come up with is that it's too short!
My Rating: 4.5/5
