Read full description of the books:
"I died one summer, or I almost did. Part of me did. I don't say that to be dramatic, only because it's true."
For the past nine years, Helena Waite has been returning to summer camp at Southpoint. Every year the camp and its familiar routines, landmarks, and people have welcomed her back like a long-lost family member. But this year she is returning not as a camper, but as a counselor, while her best friend, Katie Bell remains behind. All too quickly, Helena discovers that the innocent world of campfires, singalongs, and field days have been pushed aside for late night pranks on the boys' camp, skinny dipping in the lake, and stolen kisses in the hayloft. As she struggles to define herself in this new world, Helena begins to lose sight of what made camp special and the friendships that have sustained her for so many years. And when Ransome, her longtime crush, becomes a romantic reality, life gets even more confusing.
Told with honesty and heart, Kathryn Williams' second novel tackles the timeless theme of growing up, set at a camp where innocence is created and lost.

Read information about the authorI hate writing bios almost more than I hate writing thank you notes (they are about as stale), so I will try to make this interesting. I was born on a blustery spring day in [excised], a good year for Republicans and a bad year for zinfandels. I penned my first literary masterpiece in a pink Trapper Keeper soon after: a short story about a wild horse named Babbling Brook. Babbling Brook found herself in a pickle when the field she used for grazing froze over in a blizzard and then, still frozen, burned. While my early appreciation for plot and conflict was encouraging, it was also clear that I lacked a basic understanding of the laws of nature.
After graduating from The University of the South (Sewanee) with an English degree, I moved to Washington, D.C., and then New York City to pursue a career in journalism. My coverage of hard-hitting issues of the day, such as the new poncho trend and doggy yoga, appeared in leading publications including Newsweek, Newsweek International, The New York Observer, Shecky’s, and NYMag.com. When I tired of eating ramen noodles and free packets of ketchup, I took a job as an editorial assistant for a book packager. Thanks to clean living and friends in high places, in 2005 an essay I wrote about being “Southern in the City” was noticed by an editor at Disney-Hyperion. As they say, the rest is history (code for “kind of boring”).
I am now the author of the young adult novels The Debutante, The Lost Summer, and the forthcoming Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff that Made Me Famous, as well as an illustrated humor/advice book, Roomies: Sharing Your Home with Friends, Strangers, and Total Freaks. Under my pen name, Lucy Ruggles, I have authored or adapted a number of books, including the bestselling Camp Rock: The Junior Novel. When I am not spending the thousands of gazillions of dollars that I make writing books, I freelance as an editor for Sideshow Media. I also blog regularly for SparkLife and offer freelance writing, editing, proofreading, and photo research services.
I live somewhere between Nashville, Tennessee; New York City; and Richmond, Virginia. I am a strong believer in the healing power of butter, bacon, and Southern rock, and I never, ever wear white after Labor Day…or is it before Labor Day?
