Book Beginnings: The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls by Anton DiSclafani

"I was fifteen years old when my parents sent me away to the Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls."

I loved camp, I highly recommend camp, and it's strange to see it presented as a punishment. For she was "sent away" to the camp after an incident.

I'd like to know more about this book. The idea of camp as punishment is interesting, and I'm wondering why the girl was sent away by her family.
Here's the link to my Friday post: Beach House Memories.

The only camp I enjoyed was youth camp with my church group, but other than that, I missed my friends and parents immensely! I'm curious about the setting in this book as it does sound as the character is taking it as punishment :/ hope you enjoy your read!

I have this on my shelf but haven't gotten to it.

I hear different comments. Most are positive, but they say this is a sad book.

ENJOY your reading weekend.
