Ellie McDougal (also called "McDoodle" for her love of art and writing) is experiencing the worst trip EVER. She's stuck with the relatives straight from a nightmare in a cabin in the middle of nowhere on a camping trip. Can she survive her awful cousins, aunt and uncle, and -GASP- possibly ENJOY herself? You'll love Ellie's unique diary and looking at her great sketches in her journal. Bookworm recommends this book (written by Ruth McNally Barshaw) for 4-6 graders.
