Goodreads Synopsis:


At Miss Qiunzilla Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s camp for hard-core lady-types, things are not what they seem. Three-eyed foxes. Secret caves. Anagrams. Luckily, Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are five rad, butt-kicking best pals determined to have an awesome summer together… And they’re not gonna let a magical quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! The mystery keeps getting bigger, and it all begins here.

Collects Lumberjanes No. 1-4.


This was my second time reading the Lumberjanes, Volume 1, and I enjoyed it much better than the first time. 

The story is hilarious. Miss Qiunzilla Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s camp for hard-core lady-types isn’t your typical summer camp. The girls in the Roanoke cabin encountered three-eyed foxes and living statues, as well as mysterious boy scouts! Their encounters get more and more outrageous as the story progresses!

I found it hard to differentiate between the girls when I first read this book. I would love it if there was a diagram at the beginning or end that gave a description of each girl with their pictures. I was able to tell them apart this time because I have read the recent novels based on the series. However, they may be confusing for new readers, so I recommend reading the stories over again. 

I love the Lumberjanes! Have you read this series? What did you think?
