Brenda A. Ferber

Dear Reader:

My favorite place is a small summer camp in northern Wisconsin called Birch Knoll. I learned to water-ski and sail on its pristine lake, turned friends into sisters, and created memories so sweet and powerful that I still dream about camp thirty years later. It's no surprise I set my novel, JEMMA HARTMAN, CAMPER EXTRAORDINAIRE, at such a camp.

When kids curl up with JEMMA, I hope they'll feel the wind in their hair as they sail across a cool lake on a hot summery day, the thrill of getting up on water-skis for the first time, the loneliness of seeing their best friend drift away, and the joy of watching a new friendship bloom. It's the perfect book to tuck into a camp trunk or send as a care package.

I am giving away signed copies of JEMMA HARTMAN, CAMPER EXTRAORDINAIRE, picked from random entries. To enter, write me at or visit!

Happy Reading!
