    1. It's been a while since I've read a novel with such a young protagonist but I could not put this down. This book was so great and such a fun ride. The moral lessons were beautiful without being preachy and I felt that the MC was very realistic.The paranormal aspect was a cool invention, I only wish that there was more of it! I found the idea of everyone having one of four abilities (Earth, Air, Fire, Water) so intriguing and I just would have liked to have those details expanded. There was also [...]

    2. I loved this book. Never mind that I am not a 'tween girl, don't have two moms and don't have any particularly interesting powers -- the book still spoke to me as it will to anyone who, at 13 or so, wondered where they would fit in the world. It's a sweet story, well told, with an interesting premise and a thoroughly endearing protagonist. I highly, highly recommend it for young and not-so-young or even plain old adults.

    3. I won this book in a giveaway. I didn't hate it, but I didn't really enjoy it either. This book is a sweet story of a young teenager's growth in self-knowledge and empathy over the course of a summer. The book tries very hard to say a lot of very deep things about a lot of very complicated topics - LGBT issues, bullying, racism, and a host of other difficult elements of life for young teens. Sadly, I think that the actual story got very lost in trying to fit in all those issues and that it didn [...]

    4. - A great novella for educational identity and simple, approachable life lessons.  This short novella captivated me. Being an adult, I enjoyed reading the story of a young teenager in search for her place in the world. A creative, alternative reality to ours, with a side of wisdom. The characters are down to earth, with morals that one can associate with. I like how the main character grows through out this short novella. There was a lot of diversity, even though it felt a bit stereotypical [...]

    5. Read this after my 13 year old daughter read it and instantly named it, 'her favourite book'. I'm so very, very glad that a book like this is out there, and equally glad that it's on our bookshelf at home.

    6. "Freak Camp" is an ingeniously crafted story by Jessica V. Barnett which I won through Giveaways and begins when thirteen Celeste Jardine can't register for the fall term in one of the town of Darwin's four high schools because she hasn't found her source yet. Usually people grow into their source- earth, air, water or fire- between ten and eleven years of age, but at thirteen Celeste is an exception and is even more frustrated when her best friend May enrols in an earth camp for eight weeks. W [...]

    7. I was fortunate enough to receive this book as part of the First Reads program. This is not your average coming of age story about a girl trying to find her place in life. Barnett has a way of using fantasy but making it seem real. The characters are excellently portrayed, leaving readers feeling connected with them. This book would be a great addition to any school library. Well done Ms. Barnett, this is a great first novel! I hope there are more to come!

    8. I read early drafts of this book written by my friend Jessica Barnett and liked it then. But the final version is really great. The book covers so many topics that teens deal with and the characters were very relatable. I was so glad that Celeste had supportive family and friends to help her in her journey. So proud of you Jess!

    9. This book is incredible, a coming-of-age story set in an alternate world where your educational identity depends on whichever element you correspond with. It was really creative and original, one of the best self-published books I've read in a long time!

    10. I just got this book in the mail on Saturday!! However, I really enjoyed reading this book (: I haven't read a book like this since I was in school && read the Uglies series I fell in love with Match, && I loved how it ended!Thank you so much for this incredible book!!
