Great ending to the Archer Legacy. Really ties it together nicely. I love Ruby but I wish there was more Alisha in this book

This book was an amazing book that I have read three times. The plot is of two roommates of different walks of life forced to live together for one summer at "fat camp".

The girls spent a day at the beach. They had a long drive back they had a blast. They had their bathing suits filled with sand enjoyed riding the waves. They liked to do fun stuff together. my mom, my siblings and I like to do that type of stuff too.

I've read this book at least twenty times and I'm still not bored of it. It's really well written and I love how Rowling hides her humour.
