Mark smashed his ear to the phone. Even in the crowded cafeteria, he didn’t want
anyone else to hear what his mom was asking. Phone calls between parents and
campers weren’t allowed, but Mark had sent a letter to his mom saying he wanted
to come home and she’d told Click|keyword[Blake+Smith]“>Blake Smith, the owner
of Camp La Junta, that she would speak to her son or he would be withdrawn
immediately. On the other end of the line, Kelly tried to make out Mark’s voice
over the clatter in the Camp La Junta cafeteria. She was across the state in
Houston, but she was ready to get in the car — she wouldn’t even stop to pack a
bag — if her 11-year-old son confirmed her suspicion.
