One of my friends has her second book out.
Mystery on Pine Lake: Cooper & Packrat, by Tamra Wight
And it's really cute, really good; perfect for kids who love to read, explore and have a wonderful active imagination. So many adults (myself included) have fallen in love with Cooper:
"....Cooper thought living at a campground would be cool. But ever since his parents bought the lakeside campground, he’s had more chores and less time to explore. And as if babysitting his little sister and cleaning the bathrooms weren't bad enough, his ex-friend Roy has chosen him as this summer’s bullying target. Cooper’s only bright spot this summer is his new friend, Packrat, a guy who carries the world in his coat pockets and leaves his troubles behind. But trouble has come to the Wilder Family Campground and Pine Lake, where a family of loons is building a nest...."
Congrats Tamra! xoxo!

  1. Holy goodness- the starbucks drink link totally cracked me. This was my favorite part "
    One pump sugar-free vanilla, one pump hazelnut, half-caf, no foam latte with soy milk
    You have no friends in real life and 35000 Instagram followers." hahahhahahahhaha.
    I'm going to check out the M&Ms review and the bullies links!

  2. Hey! You linked me... XOGREG

  3. Oh Starbucks, it's so true.

  4. I have given up on Facebook! I don't know how to use it or deal with it. I hope spring is coming after this winter we had. Love Conan at the American Girl store. Even my dad was laughing out loud.

  5. Love the links, as always. Can't wait until it's clamcakes season. ;-)

  6. I'm not sure this posted- so here goes again...I always wanted to know the secrets of dogs pooping and Dennis Rodman. Now I've got it in one post! Thanks for enlightening me, Dawn! You go, girl!

  7. I could spend hours just going through your Friday links. I wonder how long it takes you to put these together for us.
    You're the best!


I love your comments!
