In the tradition of Every Soul a Star and Inside Out & Back Again, Just Like Me is a funny, uplifting summer camp story about unlikely friendships and finding your place in the world from the award-winning author of This Journal Belongs to Ratchet.

“Who eats Cheetos with chopsticks?! Avery and Becca, my ‘Chinese sisters,’ that’s who. We’re not really sisters—we were just adopted from the same orphanage. And we’re nothing alike. They like egg rolls, and I like pizza. They’re wave around Chinese fans, and I pretend like I don’t know them.

“Which is not easy since we’re all going to summer camp to ‘bond.’ (Thanks, Mom.) To make everything worse, we have to journal about our time at camp so the adoption agency can do some kind of ‘where are they now’ newsletter. I’ll tell you where I am: At Camp Little Big Lake in a cabin with five other girls who aren’t getting along, competing for a camp trophy, and losing (badly), wondering how I got here…and where I belong.”

Told through a mix of traditional narrative and journal entries, this story is a funny, surprisingly sweet summer read!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Cassandra Morris’ beautifully fluid narration highlights the themes of identity and friendship in this heartwarming story…Morris’ performance is touching. Her lively modulations and giggles convey the high, excited tones of girls as they laugh and bicker, while strained whispers capture the quiet, heartfelt moments as secrets are shared and loyalties betrayed. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    AudioFile

  • “[A] delightful, touching story…The characters are believable and well developed, and the mix of personalities helps propel the story forward. Through the issues of family and friendship, Cavanaugh explores what connects us to one another.”

    Booklist

  • “[A] charming and refreshingly wholesome coming-of-age story…Filled with swimming, campfires, games, and an occasional Bible study, the narrative follows all six cabin residents as they learn important lessons about being honest, kind, and comfortable in your own skin…Filled with slapstick humor and fast-paced action, the novel will engage reluctant readers, while offering fuel for deep contemplation by those ready to tackle questions of identity and belonging.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Incredibly moving. Julia starts to come to terms with the sea of repressed emotions that surrounds her adoption, and her bunkmates, who have their own secrets and vulnerabilities, acknowledge and share them as well…A touching ending.”
