Penelope Kingston is determined not to feel anxious about school camp, even though her last camp was a disaster. Last year, Penelope cried (only tears, not sobs) when they had to climb a ridiculously steep and frightening hill. Penelope would never forgive herself if she did that again.

To make sure she has a practically perfect camp this year, Penelope has written a Very Private List of rules. And what’s rule number one? No crying.

Penelope is a whole year older now. And more importantly, she has her very own best friend to bunk with.

This year is going to be totally different!
