Lily’s Church Camp Adventure

Friday, April 24, 2015
She looked at the three of them as if she already felt close to them. Lily felt as far away as if she were still at home.
I don’t get to eat with the Girlz? she though. I can’t sit by them at Bible study? I’m gonna be a jerk if I don’t hang with my cabin during free time?
Her heart took its final dive, right to the pit of her stomach.

Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 11-14
Subjects: Friendship, Serving, Loneliness
Summary: Camp is not supposed to be the end of the world! It’s supposed to be an amazing experience! But being separated from all of her friends is ruining everything. Lily doesn’t know a single girl in her cabin and they are supposed to do every activity with those in their cabin, not the other groups. Not only that but she’s homesick. And she doesn’t feel like she has anything in common with these other girls. They seem to be the popular kind of girls – the kind Lily knows will not want anything to do with her. And even sailing, which was supposed to be her new “calling” isn’t going very well! Can anything good come out of this camp experience?
Notes: This is the twelfth in the Young Women of Faith – the Lily Series, a series of 14 books about a young girl desperately wanting to know God’s will for her life. She wants to know what her “thing” is. Everyone else seems to have one specific passion that’s also their talent. Throughout the series Lily explores many options to figure out what hers is. In this book, she thinks her “thing” is sailing, but it gets all mixed up when she goes through some friend struggles. The leader in her cabin helps her see that she needs to reach out to and serve the other girls instead of assuming they won’t like her. Lily realizes she has a lot to offer when she changes her focus.
