I loved this book! Julia Alvarez can weave a story magnificently. This is a fantastic book for young adults because it addresses so many issues that they are consumed with. The culminating lesson of this Tia Lola book is to look within. Many kids need help doing this and this book illustrates multiple possibilities. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375867279, Hardcover)

Miguel Guzman isn't exactly looking forward to the summer now that his mother has agreed to let the Sword family—a father, his three daughters, and their dog—live with them while they decide whether or not to move to Vermont. Little does Miguel know his aunt has something up her sleeve that just may make this the best summer ever. With her usual flair for creativity and fun, Tía Lola decides to start a summer camp for Miguel, his little sister, and the three Sword girls, complete with magical swords, nighttime treasure hunts, campfires, barbecues, and an end-of-summer surprise!

The warm and funny third book in the Tía Lola Stories is sure to delight young readers and leave them looking forward to their own summer fun!
