Description de l’éditeur
Alice Wu is at Camp Rewind only because her therapist thinks it’ll help her overcome the social anxiety she’s battled since childhood. She’s not sure she believes that theory, but will try anything to make a real friend. A casual fling would also be nice, but she’s not holding her breath.
Rosa Salazar hopes camp will be an escape from a life permanently altered. Eviscerated online for her feminist critique of a popular video game, Rosa has endured months of anonymous threats over social media, doxxing, and, worst of all, the posting of graphic, sexually explicit material stolen from her cloud storage—including a dirty video she made for an ex. Using a fake name, she enrolls in camp craving a return to a simpler time, before the shame.
Alice and Rosa soon discover that at Camp Rewind, anything is possible. Even an unlikely friendship that swiftly becomes something more.
Romance is on fast forward at Camp Rewind. Adult summer camp is a huge challenge for highly anxious Alice Wu. She's often overcome by shyness and severe anxiety, and hopes that Camp Rewind might just be the place to test out social waters following her divorce. For Rosa Salazar, camp is an escape from the people who responded to her feminist critique of a beloved video game by beginning an intense, year-long campaign of online harassment and vicious threats against her. Changing her hair and her identity, Rosa hopes no one recognizes her or links her to a leaked sex tape. Rosa spots a nervous Alice in the parking lot, and is definitely intrigued and hopeful for a friend. The connection between them is instantaneous, and both are shocked by their sudden strong feelings and desires. Can the camp romance survive the weekend, let alone the future? Alice's awakening is beautiful to watch as Rosa tries to protect them both from online scrutiny. This is a quick, satisfying read for those longing for the nostalgia of a summer camp romance.
