Cherry Ames, Camp Nurse Reviews
I've never read any of the nurse books, but I couldn't resist this lovely hardback copy, on sale for 50 cents at a Park Slope stoop sale. Update: a fun read, especially at the start of summer. Can I weave baskets at Camp Blue Water, too? Cherry has VERY clean hands. In the same way that I never felt compelled to read more than a handful of Nancy Drews and Trixie Beldens, I don't think I'm going to read the entire Cherry oeuvre. But, Wendy, I will keep my eyes out for the Sue Bartons that you mentioned.
Cherry has yet another different job, this time helping at a summer camp for boys and girls. It's in the woods with typical woodland activities and Cherry only has to treat normal thinks like scratches and things like that.The problem arises when a guy named Mac Cook shows up and does a lot of work around the camp. He seems to get along well with the kids and the adults, but has a habit of mysteriously disappearing from time to time when a certain photographer, named Purdy, shows up. It's a mystery that Cherry wants to solve.As she works on it she finds it's a lot more complicated than she thought. The mystery involves a bank robbery, the possibility that Mac Cook may be the robber, the very moody photographer, a mystery man in the woods and other things going on. It takes a lot of work on her part and even puts her life in danger, but Cherry, as always, triumphs in the end. It's a good addition to the series.
This Cherry Ames is pretty much middle of the road. I think the main reason I'm frustrated is that after all her experience, you'd think she'd be moving into more responsible positions. Of course, then there wouldn't be as much time for solving mysteries. Speaking of which, at least Cherry was more sensible about accepting help in this one.
I didn't read the 2007 version; I read the version that looked really old in the 1970's & seemed to take place around the 1930's or 40's.
Enjoyed these books as a kid and am enjoying them again as an adult. Like the adventures that Cherry has. Looking forward to rest of the series.
What an interesting period piece!
A solid, yet run-of-the-mill entry in the Cherry Ames series.
