Stella the Unstoppable and the School Camp Kerfuffle

by Richard Newsome

Hi! I’m Stella and yes, I’ll admit it. I am just a teeny tiny bit obsessed with winning the Camp Cup this year. Who wouldn’t be? The winner gets a pizza party! Year Five camp only comes around once in a lifetime and it’s going to be awesome. Except … the campsite is on the edge of an old abandoned graveyard. And there’s a rumour that a kid called Spud Riley went to camp and never came back. AND we’re on a Camp Cup team with Lizzie Lawless, and the thing you need to know about Lizzie Lawless is – oh. Never mind. You’ll see …

It’s going to be hectic. Yes. No. Really.
