Told in a series of letters, memos, receipts, and ledger pages.  Three sets of siblings are off to Camp Happy Harmony.  Brisket Roast whose father says is as lazy as a slug and his sister, Barbie Q. who is as spirited as a mustang.  Charlie and Charlotte Lee who are described as wonderful kids who are liked by everyone except each other.   Ivan and Mimi Gems who have no social skills and won’t go to bed but stay in their rooms for hours.  The counselors are also siblings and used to appear in the singing group The Harmonys.  They have advertised their camp as specializing in sibling relationships.  For the next four weeks, the children will learn to get along.  Sounds perfect.  Things are not what they seem.
