There's A Bat In Bunk Five: Marcy's thrilled when her former teacher, Ms. Finney, asks her to be a junior counselor at a new creative-arts camp. This is Marcy's big chance to have a summer away from her family, at a new place where only Ms. Finney knows that she was once a fat nobody. Marchy's sure it will be a perfect summer.
