"Maggie is fifteen and has spent basically every summer of her life at the one-hundred-year-old Camp Bellflower for Girls, set deep in the heart of Appalachia. She's from Atlanta, she's never kissed a guy, she's into Backstreet Boys in a really deep way, and her long summer days are full of a pleasant, peaceful sort of nothing. Until one confounding moment. After a split second of innocent physical contact during a lice inspection, Maggie falls into gut-twisting love with Erin, an older, wiser, and, most surprising of all (at least to Maggie), female counselor. But Camp Bellflower is an impossible place for a girl to fall in love with another girl, and Maggie's spontaneous expertise at the camp's rifle range is the only thing that keeps her heart from exploding. When it seems as if Erin might feel the same way about Maggie, it's too much for both Maggie and Camp Bellflower to endure, let alone understand"--Dust jacket flap.

In this colorful graphic memoir, Thrash describes what happened after she developed an unexpected teenage crush on a camp counselor at an isolated summer camp for girls.

The story of the author's moment of realization, when she falls unexpectedly head-over-heels in love with her older female camp counselor. Good for anyone grappling with similar realizations, or trying to understand someone grappling with similar realizations.
