The program continued to develop and soon moved into a small building near the front of the property. In , the name changed from "Summer Camp" to "Summer Enrichment" in order to recognize the dynamic program design which allows for individualization and includes vocational training opportunities.
At the core of Summer Enrichment Program is an emphasis on providing programming to meet a variety of needs. This might include working in the gardens or green houses, taking care of farm animals, or creating works of art in the art studio. Every week, the program has a different theme.

By the end, the author had really brought the story full circle and I was rooting for Zach. The narration was well done, Lori Prince read dramatically and really put life into the story. She had the perfect voice for the story and was easy to listen to. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.
Nov 20, Lexi Divan rated it liked it. Marge has been bullied when she was younger and spent 6 years in therapy before she became almost human again.
Her parents are going home to the town where it all happened doing a favor for the family of one of the boys that bullied her, Zach. It turns out that Zach's parents paid them to keep the situation quiet and bypass lawsuits. Being rich they feel like their son shouldn't face punishment like normal people and pay her medical fees at the same time. That's what they should have done. Inste Marge has been bullied when she was younger and spent 6 years in therapy before she became almost human again.
Instead they paid off her parents which covered her medical fees and then makes them feel indentured to them to come back to the place it started to work for them. They suck and so to does her parents as they constantly defend them. The only reason Zach changed was because his friend died due to drunk driving but instigated by his other friend's stupidity.
He deserves to suffer a bit even if he didn't bully her as much. Doesn't matter if you're a kid, your parents are rich so if you shut down the bullies they protect your sorry ass. Marge was a good character who faced many struggles and overcame them. She let Zach off after he proved himself and went of to Paris for school with him following her. His parents were never confronted about the money. Sorry asses. It was a good book with lots of drama and growing up to be a better person not just to the one person you're trying to show but to everyone in society.
You become better because you no longer have to try as that person with morals and values become you. Oct 14, A. This was an excellent book all around. Not only were the characters shockingly realistic, their actions served themselves, not the plot, not anything else. They remained consistent in who they were throughout with the exception of the gradual growth necessary to their arcs, of course.
They grew realistically. Nothing felt forced, and I loved that. Oct 05, Diana rated it it was amazing. I loved the story.
Being tortured and bullied by kids and then having to go back to that tells a lot about someones character. Margie has amazing strength and courage. I really enjoyed the whole story.

I can't remember what originally made me purchase this book, but it's been sitting on my Kindle a while, and when I recently noticed that Gail Carriger had given this a 5-star review, I knew I had to give it a shot. I like that this book really emphasizes the awfulness of bullying.

It wasn't just some schoolyard shoving around or name-calling - among other things, they used to throw dead mice at her. She suffered a near-fatal head injury trying to escape her tormentors. Since it's narrated from I can't remember what originally made me purchase this book, but it's been sitting on my Kindle a while, and when I recently noticed that Gail Carriger had given this a 5-star review, I knew I had to give it a shot. Since it's narrated from Margie's point of view, we see how her memories and encounters with familiar faces and places trigger panic attacks, rage-blackouts, migraines, and stress-vomiting.
We see her coping tactics, how she talks herself down.
My Bittersweet Summer by Starla Huchton
What I particularly liked is that the book doesn't romanticize Zach's initial efforts - or at least, it minimizes that urge. He starts showing up unexpectedly, surprising her and sometimes triggering her anxiety , he follows her around, he doesn't leave her alone when she asks him to - and she calls him out on it. She tells him he's being a stalker, and she doesn't think it's cute. When he does finally manage to win her trust, and then promptly loses it, she tells him that if he wants to win it back, he needs to let her dictate the terms, and he needs to give her space.
And he does.
She says that he is not entitled to her time, that she does not owe him her forgiveness, and that actions speak louder than apologies, and he listens. It's not his persistence-at-all-costs that eventually wins her over which we see in SO. He finally, finally gets it. And then they become friends. And yes, a romance does develop between them, and while I enjoyed it, I loved that it was rather Zach's initial motivation for specifically trying to make it up to Margie is not because of romantic interest, but because she was the one that his group of friends tormented most, and he tells her that if she can give him a second chance, then the rest of the world will be a piece of cake.
And then along the way, he falls in love with her. I found the epilogue to be a little corny, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. This is a story about love, yes, but it's more a story about forgiveness, redemption, and growing up. It's a story about going against expectations, and it definitely exceeded mine. Jul 11, Rachel Barnard rated it it was amazing. Margie was bullied relentlessly as a child. It was only when her family moved that she was able to slowly recover and become a stronger and more put together person.
One boy in par Margie was bullied relentlessly as a child. One boy in particular, Zack, keeps bothering her. Starla Huchton has done it again. The book flowed from beginning to end and held its tension and my attention throughout the entirety of the story. Margie has so much personality and her past, though only told in bits and pieces throughout her present day life, is so alive for the reader.

Present Margie is a product of Past Margie, but she has worked hard to become a new Margie. Going back to the place where her bullies tormented her would break anyone. Margie is not a super human, she is susceptible to bouts of panic and emotion when she has to confront the same bullies all grown up.
She reacts with words and even her fist at one point, but there are other factors that keep her from losing all control. I love a person who is trying to be a better person. He has a lot of past to overcome as one of those that stood by and let Margie get bullied. The ones who do nothing are just as guilty as those who are at the front of the assault. Zack has a lot to make up for and the way he tries is super sweet. I loved all his gestures and how hard he tried. Aug 09, K.
