    Diane Falanga, a mother of two, was inspired to put this book together after receiving her eight-year-old daughter's hilarious letters home from camp. After sharing her story with a number of friends, and sending e-mails across the country she was able to gather a few hundred laugh-out-loud letters for this collection. She is an interior designer and founder of the Heart Homes Initiative of Designs for Dignity (a not-for-profit providing furniture for those in need). Diane lives on Chicago's North Shore.
    For every parent who’s ever received a letter from a homesick child or anybody who’s ever written their parents with crazy requests from their bunk, P.S. I Hate It Here: Kids’ Letters From Camp will delight with hilarious and heartwarming real-life letters.

    In the bestselling tradition of nostalgic looks at classic rites of passage, such asCamp Camp and Bar Mitzvah Disco, P.S. I Hate It Here: Kids’ Letters from Campcaptures a childhood experience shared by millions. This collection of real letters written by children ages eight to sixteen to their parents about their adventures at summer camp are laugh-out-loud funny and will have readers reminiscing about their own camp days.

    More than 150 letters cover all the imaginable scenarios of sleep away camp, from acing the cabin lice inspection, to rowing in the “ricotta” race, to breaking the bad news about a retainer lost in the wilderness. These letters reveal that kids are wittier and more sophisticated than we might assume, and that the experience of being away from home for the first time creates hilarious and lasting memories.

    Inspired by her daughter's "melodramatic rants" from camp, Diane Falanga collected 150 hilarious, poignant letters from kids 8-16 ... Read it and remember.
