Added to the Pile + 52

Technically just one book this week but I forgot to add in my PaperbackSwap book from last week to last week's post so that one is carrying over. From that I received Sleepaway Girls by Jen Calonita. And from Janice Bashman, I received Wanted Undead or Alive: Vampire Hunters and Other Kick-Ass Enemies of Evil by Jonatham Maberry and Janice Gable Bashman. Thanks a bunch!

When Sam Montgomery's best friend gets her first boyfriend, she's not ready to spend the summer listening to the two of them call each other "pookie." Sick of being a third wheel, Sam applies to be a counselor-in-training at Whispering Pines camp in the New York Catskills. But what she doesn't realize is that it's not going to be all "Kumbaya" sing-alongs and gooey s'mores.

If Ashley, the alpha queen of Whispering Pines, doesn't ruin Sam's summer, then her raging crush on the surfer-blond and flirtatious Hunter just might. At least she has playful Cole, who's always teasing her but is oh-so-comfortable to hang out with, and the singular gang of girls who become fast friends with Sam - they call themselves the Sleepaway girls. (book back blurb)
