Ruby and her three BFFs go camping in this third installment of the relatable and empowering The Invincible Girls Club chapter book series that fans of The Baby-Sitters Club will love!

Ruby’s life turns upside-down when her parents give her some big news: she’s going to be a big sister! She is a little worried about the new arrival, so her dad takes her and the rest of the Invincible Girls camping for the weekend, where she plans to become one with nature, bond with her friends and Dad, and get away from technology for the weekend.

However, she finds that things are not as easy as they seem. She forgets a key item to bring, her friends don’t seem as excited as she is...and she kind of forgot about the bears who like to visit the camp sites! Ruby wonders if maybe it isn’t about leaving everything behind for an escape into nature but finding the perfect balance.

One of Rachele Alpine’s first jobs was at a library, but it didn’t last long, because all she did was hide in the third-floor stacks and read. Now she’s a little more careful about when and where she indulges her reading habit. Rachele is a high school English teacher by day, a wife and mother by night, and a writer during any time she can find in between. She lives in Cleveland, Ohio, where she writes middle grade and young adult novels. Visit her at RacheleAlpine.com.

Addy Rivera Sonda has loved creating characters and worlds on paper ever since she was a little girl, as everything was always possible there. Drawing was her magic power! Her favorite place is any bookstore that has that old book smell. Aside from drawing, her favorite hobbies are doing projects with her sister, who is a toy designer, and watching old Argentinian soap operas. It inspires her to think that stories and art are slowly but surely changing the way people understand themselves and perceive others, building empathy and a more inclusive world.
