I loved this way more than I had expected going in. First, we are presented with an aggressive, obnoxious teenager who can't stand her "step-monster" and is pretty frightful in her own behaviour against her parents. But she gets shipped off to summer camp mistakenly, I wonder, to a camp for monsters, where Skye quickly finds out that looks can be deceiving and that she's the odd one out for a change. She learns about accepting differences and makes new friends. The book's lesson is easy to see but it's not forced with the fun, monsterish friendships and a budding romance all taking main plot points. The characters had depth especially Skye and Mia and the creepy, spooky art by Katzenstein is fantastic. Much more my kind of summer camp comic than say, Lumberjanes, which bored me.
