I read the first Zebrafish book and while it didn't particularly grab me, I saw some potential so was pleasantly surprised to see this sequel come up three whole years later. Would it be three times better? Hardly. However, I thought it was a fairly well done story along the same vein as the first one. Teens learning to deal with being teens and added issues including one medical-related. The character from the first book is back but in remission and this time in the medical hut at summer camp she meets a diabetic boy who wears a pump of insulin on his stomach which he controls with a remote device and caries around in a fanny pack. These issues are added to the everyday camp issues of being councilors-in-training, summer jobs with the bookmobile, creating spoon art sculptures, saving wildlife from traps and eventually gaining a new member for their band. A quick easy-breezy read. Middle graders should identify, but the characters don't go beneath the surface and too much stuff was happening that I couldn't really care about any one issue/event enough. ( )
