Jessie and Hillary became best friends at Camp Chickawah. Their friendship fell apart when Hillary chose an internship over another summer working at the camp. Jessie, who was heartbroken, was so devoted to the camp that she ended up as its director. Following the passing of the camp owners, their children decided to it was time to sell the valuable property. To give former campers a chance to say goodbye, Jessie made the final summer at Camp Chickawah an adults-only camp. In addition to Hillary, who yearns to reconnect with Jessie, the camp also welcomes back Luke, a past crush of Jessie's who is now a brooding writer and Cooper, who gave Hillary her first kiss. He is hired as the camp's chef. Everyone joins together to bid farewell to their beloved camp. Unless they can save it.

In this love-letter to summer camp, friendship and second chances, Until Next Year is a fun, swoony story that will have many memories flooding back especially if you were someone who lived for those two months of sleepaway camp. If you wonder why the author writes such engaging stories about friends, it's because Ali Brady is the pen name of writing BFFs Alison Hammer and Bradeigh Godfrey. Summer is the perfect time to immerse yourself in books that bring back wonderful memories.
