In this novel by Gayle Friesen, by turns hilarious and touching, a summer at camp changes everything and a young woman learns to be herself. jensha, July 27, 2007.

When the fearless Zoe breaks her arm in a fall, Anna must brave summer camp -- and her debut as a Counselor In Training -- without her best friend. Going it alone is not something Anna is ready for. Cruising along in Zoe's shadow had been comfortable, but now Anna is out in the full glare of the sun. There's no hiding from harsh truths and plenty of people to point them out. Take Karim, the swim instructor, who has suddenly turned gorgeous but obviously hates Anna. And Anna's new friend and cabinmate Isabel -- rainbow hair, sharp tongue and no boundaries. Sooner or later Anna will have to face another hard truth: things have changed between her and Zoe and there's no going back into the shadows. But where can Anna hide when just being herself isn't nearly enough?

"I didn't think it would turn out this way (pg. 217)" This quote from The Isabel Factor the story of two best friends, Anna, the nice girl, and Zoe, the adventurous one, who have never been apart in their lives. They were planning to become CIT's at their favorite camp on a beautiful Canadian Island. This was going to be the best summer ever! "I can barely stand it, not being outside, not being near the water, (pg. 18)" said Zoe just before she breaks her arm and ruins the plan by not coming to camp. Anna is very sad and does not want to go, but is forced by her wild mother. When Anna first walks inside camp, Big Jack, the camp director, is there with a warm hug. Everyone asks where Zoe is and to protect Zoe, Anna has to tell a lie to all her friends and counselors. In her cabin, she meets Isabel, a rainbow- haired girl who has her own opinion about everything. "Keep her in line. Get her to see how important this is (pg. 78)" said the bossy Jennifer, a cabin mate who gave Anna the job to watch Isabel all summer. Surprisingly, they start to become friends. About half way through the summer, Zoe arrives at camp and everyone is excited. Anna hoped Isabel and Zoe would become friends, but that could never happen because of their differences. Anna needs to find out what happened to the Zoe she used to know and how to deal with all her problems at camp.

If one is looking for a book about best friends and camp, would be the book. However, this book is not a fantasy, every detail is realistic. The Isabel Factor is an interesting, fiction book with lots of adventure. It is very exciting with a very surprising and shocking ending. It almost blew me out of my seat! I could barely put the book down because it makes me curious about what would happen next. This is a unique book to read because of its details about the setting. I could picture the modern day Canadian Island because of the description. The Isabel Factor is very different from other books, even books of the same genre. I have never read a book that has as many problems as this one has, but it makes the book exciting and interesting!

This book is highly recommended for teenage girls since they can relate this book to their own lives. It tells teenage girls to be themselves and how to treat friends. Other books similar to this one are The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and The Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares. While they are both about friendship and have many similarities, the Isabel Factor uses more detail and is more realistic. This is a book I believe a teenage girl would enjoy and is an astounding book to read.

I wasn't to sure when I saw this book on my school's library shelf. I didn't want to read another book with the same type message, the same type of characters, and the same whole plot line. I decided to give it a shot, and I am so glad I did. This book is perfect for teenage girls. All the characters are very captivating, especially the wild Isabel. This story blends just the right amount of humour into it's plot line. I absolutley LOVED this book! One of the better 'finding yourself' books!

I just set the book down after chapter three. It's funny enough. The Author has a delightful cadence with the characters but she peppers it with swearing. The delightful banter isn't worth the slap in the face every time the youth swear. In a world where youth get crude examples everywhere they turn I really don't think they need it in their literature. Swearing happens when someone isn't intelligent enough to think of anything better to say. I know scores of young ladies that speak eloquently without foul language. The bad language didn't add to the charm of the book, only detracted.

I loved this book. It is so captivating and exciting. Once you get started you can't stop reading it until you've finished it, and even then you still want more! The plot is GENIUS! I love the way Galye Friesen keeps adding exciting news all through the book!

I'm not quite sure what drew me to this book, but it was truly, shockingly boring. There were a few good laugh lines, but mostly just female bonding of the bland kind mixed with a smidgen of self-realization.

Really, that can still make for a good book, if the characters are interesting and draw you in their narrative.

This is NOT that book.
