When I first got a look at my beautiful book jacket, created by Greg Swearingen, I fell in love. It was perfect.
Then some people who knew me as a kid thought Jemma looked a lot like me, and I had to prove to them that I was not nearly as cute.
That's me in 1978, my first summer of camp.
Then my daughter told me there was a girl at Camp Birch Knoll who looked exactly like Jemma. Lo and behold, I saw quite a resemblance.
But then I got an e-mail from the proud Nana of Clara Rosemary D. Clara is a dead-ringer for Jemma!
Do you know someone who looks like Jemma? If so, send me a photo, and I'll post it here. Girls who look the most like Jemma will win a free autographed book from me!
