One day. Just one day. That's how long it took for fourteen year-old Faye Martin's ordinary life to take a dramatic and completely unexpected turn. First, she gets struck by lightning a strange and awful experience in itself, but then made worse because Benjamin Parker, the object of her obsession, witnessed her near-death experience. Then she comes home to find her parents are forcing her to leave her friends and hometown of Seattle to attend a summer camp, aptly named Camp Milestone. After several failed attempts to change her parents mind Faye finds herself on a plane headed across the country to a camp she has never heard of.

Only, Camp Milestone is no ordinary camp. There are no phones allowed, shabby cabins and only a handful of campers. The only good turn of events is Benji her longtime crush is among the sparsely populated camp. This highlight of her summer is overshadowed by the camps strange and harsh rules given out by the head of the camp Galiana Moore, who seems crazy most of the time, and who unfortunately has taken a liking to Faye. As if things were not bad enough she notices an odd rash that has consumed most of her back from the lighting strike that seems to not only be growing larger but glowing slightly. Before she knows it, Faye finds herself caught in a whirlwind of uncertainty, torture, calamine lotion and romance....All in the name of summer camp. But as the summer unfolds, she realizes there is much more to Camp Milestone than meets the eye. Will she be able to unravel the mystery that surrounds this unusual camp? And more importantly, will she be able to survive the madness long enough to put the pieces together?

I know I may be a little biased since the Author is my Sister in Law, however I do have to say Milestones is a VERY well written book. I don't read much and when I do I usually lose interest pretty quick. That was not the case with Samira's book. The Story line is great and the surprize at the book's end is even better. I would suggest this book to any pre-teen or teenager for that matter looking for a good read.

* Warning / The word ridiculous will be constantly mentioned in this review.

I want to begin this review with the quote that drew my attention to read this title:

"Milestones is a delightful story about the true meaning of self-discovery, love and friendship, book one of the Milestones trilogy takes readers into an imaginative and amazing new world which gives a whole new meaning to summer vacation."

After reading the story I thought Milestones is neither of the things that are mentioned above. If I can use on word to summarize the book it will be ridiculous. Faye, the main character and the narrator is a character that is not interesting at all. She is boring and her way to show the reader the world she's living in is a complete torture of dragging and dragging the story at the never end point. Camp Milestone is a ridiculous place with ridiculous tasks that are developing to show to the characters "what they really are". I figured out the main "mystery" very early in the story but I was hoping that at the end the story was not as ridiculous as it seemed. My major problem with the story is not the narrator because I've read books before where I don't like the narrator and I still enjoy them but the problem with this story is that the plot line is so ridiculous that I question myself: why did I finished reading it? Since the plot does not have any substance or fundament once you get to understand the mystery that surrounds the story. Without spoiling the story, I'll say that legends and classics are eternal for something. It's a little sad because the 2009 debutants are pretty great but this one let me down.

I absolutely loved this young adult book. It's the first in a trilogy and I CANNOT WAIT for the next 2! I read the book in one day.

Faye is an ordinary 14 year old girl (or is she?!) who is struck by lightening on the way home... and of all the days, her crush is right there to witness the horror! She stumbles home, where her parents inform her that she's heading to a mysterious camp for the summer.

The camp is weird. Crazy things start happening. There's a secret the campers have to figure out...

and what a secret! I NEVER would've guessed it in a million years. And that's saying a lot, considering how many YA books I've read in the last few years.

Milestones is a unique and fresh concept. It's extraordinarily written, easy to read, and the main character is so likable and easy to relate to. I felt like I was 14 the entire time I was reading this book! I am counting the days until books two and three come out... hurry up!!

When I looked at the book and said "hmm..i'll read it", When I read it, the book was fabulous. This book should absolutely be in your top 10 or top 5 books. I couldn't stop
reading this book.

I enjoyed the journey with Faye and her friends as they adventured through camp Milestone and learned that life isn't always as it appears. Full of mystery and intrigue, I couldn't put it down and I can't wait for book number 2.
This book is a fantastic read!
