Harriet, a quirky, nature-loving teenage misfit with attitude and an aversion to personal hygiene, is sent off to the Mourne Mountain Summer Camp for what proves to be a highly eventful week!Slipping out for a late night stroll in the nearby woods, she becomes aware that something more than she bargained for is lurking in the trees. A series of hilarious misadventures by day and heart racing discoveries by night, make this a trip that Harriet will never forget!

Gemma J. Weir, Northern Irish-born author, currently lives in Belfast with her husband, her two girls and her two step-sons.

Born in 1983, Gemma grew up in a small village called Millisle on the County Down coastline. The Northern Irish scenery and landscapes, along with her young children, have been the inspiration for her writing. As a single mother, Gemma would take her children on country walks, all wrapped up in coats and Wellington boots; on such a walk one day, the Hoblins were born. Enjoying the magic and mystery her small children saw in everyday life, Gemma indulged their fantasy with elaborate tales of mythical creatures, helping them to create a new world of intrigue, far from reality.

Later, upon marrying her husband Jim, Gemma and her daughters moved from the sea side village to the city of Belfast, where she finished her first book at the kitchen table with a cup of tea and where they all lived happily ever after... in chaos.

    I was kindly sent this book by Austin Macauley in exchange of an honest review.

    This book is about a 13 year old girl who is packed off to summer camp so her parents can go on a couple retreat. Much to Harriet's disgust!

    It starts by explaining about Harriet and how she is a nature loving teenage misfit nicknamed Halitosis Harriet, she is a keen explorer desperate to discover a new species.

    By day she is socially awkward resulting in a lot of misadventures but by night, she is out on the hunt for a new discovery, however she didn't quite expect to encounter the Hoblins. She will certainly never forget this summer camp!

    I think this is a great book that all children should read as it shows them that anybody can be a hero, they just have to believe in themselves first.
