A light and heartwarming novel!
I received a free paperback copy of this book a couple of years ago at Ozarks Indie Book Fest, then I purchased a digital copy of the book, and opted to share my review.
At first, I thought this might be a "creepy summer camp" novel and I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be a light, fun, and heartwarming novel. Copeland has this amazing knack for creating relevant and engaging young adult characters, making it easy to love Nina and all of the campers she built relationships with. I liked Nina immediately because I can relate to how difficult it is to feel overwhelmed when I don't have control over events or people, especially when those events or people have an adverse effect on my life. I think Copeland expressed Nina's feelings well and I didn't think Nina was whiny or being dramatic.
The other characters in the book are truly just as amazing as Nina. There are a couple of characters who could be considered as "antagonists," and it's pretty clear who these people are from the beginning. I was warned about a possible trigger because of an attempted assault in the plot; however, it wasn't an issue for me since the perpetrator wasn't able to go through with it.
I enjoyed the premise and I loved that the supernatural/paranormal aspect of the novel was ESP. Drops of Sunshine was a nice break from the norm and I think readers who are looking for a light and interesting read will enjoy it.
