Middle School Book Review: Launching Sisters to Witch Camp by LRS


By on 2/10/2014 05:50:00 AM

I was an only child--so I was never struck with urges to ship off annoying siblings--but, the idea probably has occurred to my daughters.  I though it would be fun to read and review Launching Sisters to Witch Camp with my middle daughter. What did Macy and I think of Launching Sisters to Witch Camp by LRS?

Quick Summary of Launching Sisters to Witch Camp.  Sixth-grader J.J. learns there are no easy breaks in life.  When J.J. discovers the opportunity to send his maddening sisters off to WitchCamp, he has fantasies of a delightful summer.

However, J.J. and his friend are soon off on a ride they didn't anticipate -- one that lands them in a chilling mess of witch hunts and creature feasts.  With his creative ideas, J.J. utilizes their risky escapades to escape. But making deals with superhuman creatures just lands them in hotter water.

Now it’s up to J.J. to save them all from certain death by being more imaginative and daring than ever before.

Macy's Review of Launching Sisters to Witch Camp by LRS.  I thought that this book was good. I think that ages 9-13 would be the best age level and have the most interest in this book.  I think that it was overall very easy to read, but a couple of words were a little bit difficult. I think that it was an interesting book and this book taught a lesson.  I am glad that I read it.  Daveyboy is very sweet as well as his sister, Cookie.  J.J.’s older sister, Angela, is wicked and his younger sister, Dolly, is a “blabbermouth”.  J.J. is outgoing--so it's easy to see the characters as someone you know in real life.  This book is very good and interesting, so I do suggest you read it.  To be honest I really was NOT looking forward to reading this...I thought the cover looked a little too young for me to like the book--but I am so glad that I did!!  

Mom's Review of Launching Sisters to Witch Camp by LRS.  It was a cute story--and, I think, one that many parents will relate if they have mediated many sibling disputes.  I do think it's written for middle school ages--so parents may not have as much interest in reading along as they may sometimes with other books.  I would certainly read another book by LRS--or pick up one for the girls to read.  It's a fun story--with some lesson learning opportunities for the kids.

Short Excerpt from Launching Sisters to Witch Camp by LRS
“Crack open your piggy bank and we’re out of here.” I propel DaveyBoy to Main Street, and hit the costume store. Diving in to a pile of wigs, I pull out two that will do the job. My wig is shiny black and the hair hangs down to my elbows. DaveyBoy’s is a brown mop of frizz, which extends halfway down his back.

The manicurist looks like she’s ready to call the crazy house when we saunter in to her salon and ask for fake long nails. Money does the trick, though, and soon enough we exit with long nails polished in black.

DaveyBoy clears his throat. “Um, J.J., what exactly are we doing? Are we going to a costume party?”

“Don’t you get it, dude? Our long hair and nails are tickets to the WitchCamp!”

He walks straight into an electric pole.

“Ouch.” I wince.

He rubs his temple and looks at me with puppy dog eyes. “Tell me you’re joking.”

“A man’s got to do what a man’s got to do. But, cheer up, buddy. Think of it as an amazing adventure we can add to our list of summer escapades.”

About the Author 
LRS has a master’s degree in psychology. For more than ten years she pretended to be working while she was on the floor enjoying playtime with kids. She has lived on the eastern and western coasts of the U.S.A, as well as abroad, and currently resides in Canada with her family.

Wherever she is, she can’t pass by a toy store without going inside. When she's not writing, she can usually be found in her kitchen, where she’s either baking (and sampling) cookies or stirring a pot. (Unfortunately, she has yet to find a magical spoon.)

    1. I will--I usually do a batch of Amazon/Goodreads/etc. reviews once a month--but, the girls had the flu and that was pushed back on my to-do list! I will do it with my next batch! Macy really like the book--so, thank you for giving us the opportunity to review it! :)
