Guest Blogger Angie Brillhart on Barbour's New Camp Club Girls Series
Girls ages 8 to 12 will enjoy the mystery, mayhem, and adventure found in Barbour’s new Camp Club Girls series written specifically for them! Camp Club Girls & the Mystery at Discovery Lake and Sydney’s D.C. Discovery, the first two books in the 24-book series, officially released in January 2010. Books three and four, McKenzie’s Montana Mystery and Alexis and the Sacramento Surprise release in March 2010. Two books will release every other month through November 2011. Each 160-page paperback book in the series will retail for $5.97.
In Camp Club Girls & the Mystery at Discovery Lake, the series begins with six girls meeting at Camp Discovery and learning they all share one thing in common: an aptitude for intrigue! They form a super sleuth ring, call themselves the Camp Club Girls, and are soon embroiled in a search for lost jewels. After the first book, each of the 24 titles focuses on one girl, though the other characters are involved in each story and use their special skills—analyzing, spiritual insight, gadgetry, physical strengths, and research—to help the whole team stump adversaries and master the mysteries they encounter. In Sydney’s D.C. Discovery, Sydney and Elizabeth are on-site in the nation’s capital when odd happenings occur at the Vietnam Memorial. Can they decipher the clues and save the president before the dawn’s early light?
To kick off the new Camp Club Girls series, Barbour Publishing will be holding both reader and store contests.
