Maybe the others would have believed me. Maybe not. But I wasn’t going to tell them. This was just for me. – Vera
Every summer, all of Vera’s friends go off to camp. She never has. Now she is.
Vera is Russian, and as much as she tries to fit in with her American friends, she still feels like the odd one out. After a bit of a disaster with her birthday sleepover, Vera hears about a Russian camp called O.R.R.A. from a girl at her church, and she is determined to go there. She thinks that she won’t be that left out, because everyone else would be Russian, like her. She isn’t prepared for the camp ahead of her.
