From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-7 --Richie, first seen in Upchuck Summer (Delacorte, 1982) and Best Friends Don't Come in Threes (Dell, 1985), returns to summer camp--this time as a junior counselor. Despite his efforts to avoid being thought of as a nerd, a dork, or a dweeb, he finds himself caught with his fly down, falling into a swimming pool, hiding in a shower as a girl counselor steps in, and falling from a tree in a Halloween mask. In short, he finds himself in one embarrassing and humorous situation after another. Most of the slapstick is triggered by Chuck, who Richie sees as a true nerd, and most takes place in front of Lisa, the girl of Richie's dreams. Chuck turns out to be a true friend, however, as he helps Richie tame Jerry, the camp cool guy and obnoxious bore. In all, this book is as lighthearted and fast paced as its predecessors. A minor flaw is a silly and unrealistic description of a touch-football game that comes in true "Rocky" movie fashion near the end of the book. Overall, though, the book promises laughs and consistently delivers them. --Todd Morning, Schaumburg Township Pub . Lib . , IL

From Publishers Weekly:

This lighthearted sequel to Upchuck Summer delivers laughs aplenty as it chronicles the vicissitudes of camp life--particularly Richie's problems with the opposite sex, hampered by rival Jerry and nerdy Chuck. Ages 9-12.
