Author(s): Chrissie Perry
Penelope Kingston is determined not to feel anxious about going on school camp. On last year's camp, Penelope had cried (only tears, not sobs) when a teacher made them climb a ridiculously steep and frightening hill. Penelope would never forgive herself if she did that again. To make sure she has a practically perfect camp this year, Penelope has written a (very private) list of rules. And what's rule number one? No crying. Penelope is a whole year older now. And (more importantly) she now has her very own best friend to bunk with. This year is going to be totally different!
Chrissie Perry is the author of over thirty books for children and young adults, including thirteen books in the popular Go Girl series and the award-winning Whisper. She lives in St Kilda with her husband, three children (who are stubbornly refusing to stay young) and an opinionated Maltese Shih Tzu called Gidget. Like Penelope Kingston, Chrissie believes it's great to aim for excellence. But she has a sneaking suspicion that going with the flow every now and again can also work out just fine.
