Book 5
Summer camp is more fun when you have Friends for Keeps!

It’s Ida May’s first time at sleepaway camp, and her two BFFs, popular Stacey and highly organized Jenna, are also coming along. But when they arrive at camp, their bunkmate is the last person Ida expected to ever see again: Elizabeth Evans, her last best friend who moved away before the start of this series. Ida was heartbroken when Liz didn’t answer her letters, and now Liz won’t even apologize. All the other girls are ready to welcome Liz back, but Ida just can’t be the peacemaker this time. Not until she and Liz talk.

Chockablock with fourth-grade wisdom, laughter, jealousies–and apologies–this conclusion to the series is a must read for all Ida May fans.

Friendships are shifting for Ida May, and all because Jenna and Brooke (former BFFs) are feuding. No one knows what started the fight, but soon the girls in class have taken sides, with Ida May stuck in the middle. Does Ida have what it takes to understand the true nature of Jenna and Brooke’s friendship and figure out the way to bring them, and the rest of the class, together?

Ida May finally fits in at school after becoming best friends with Stacey Merriweather, one of the popular girls. But then Ida’s frenemy, bossy Jenna Drews, brings in a game of truth or dare, and all the girls are suddenly daring one another to misbehave. When Ida finds herself in the principal’s office, she ends up ratting out her friendsÑwith disastrous consequences. The only way she can fix things is to take a triple-dog dare, but Ida May isn’t sure she has the guts. Will her BFF come to her rescue, or is this the perfect job for a frenemy?
