Sammy Keyes and the Wild Things (Sammy Keyes)by Wendelin Van Draanen
Synopses & Reviews
THIS IS NOT the summer camping trip of Sammys dreams. She imagined shade, streams, a deer or two. But she winds up in a phony forest with scrubby shrubs, blazing sun, rattlesnakes, and scorpions. Her fellow campers are desperate to catch a rare glimpse of an endangered condor in the wild. Sammys seen enough—that bird is ugly!
But when she and two other girls find an injured condor, Sammys intrigued. The girls stray away from their group to track down a clue, but instead stumble onto two classmates and wind up lost. Which leaves three girls and two boys in the middle of a canyon with one tent and six billion biting flies. Oh—and an armed and dangerous high-stakes poacher.
Sammy Keyes goes on a summer camping trip that, in her opinion, becomes nothing more than the painful pursuit of the unspeakably ugly. But when she and two other girls find an injured condor, Sammy's intrigued at last.
