Annie Tipton made up her first story at the ripe old age of two when she asked her mom to write it down for her. (Hey, she was just two—she didn't know how to make letters yet!) Since then she has read and written many words as a student, newspaper reporter, author, and editor. Annie loves snow (which is a good thing because she lives in Ohio), wearing scarves, sushi, Scrabble, and spending time with friends and family.

The Phone Tree EdifierAtlanta, GAAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5"...positively authentic..."February 1, 2014The Phone Tree EdifierAtlanta, GAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This was my very first time reading a book from this series, but it won't be my last. I loved Diary of a Real Payne Book 2: Church Camp Chaos. I cannot wait to introduce my kids to this positively authentic children's fiction title.
Why I loved this book:
- I felt that the characters were interesting. They were genuine and good. Good in the way that you would hope those around you would be. (Even Cora proved to have a notable glimpse of goodness at one point.)
- Each life had a fascinating edge. EJ, Macy, Cora, Issac, mom and dad, the grandparents, Susan and so on, they each had their own identifiable strengths and weaknesses. The character traits and flaws made them easy to relate to.
- The Payne family closeness was real, not forced or contrived. I always love to see books with a strong male and female parental unit. The parents were of one accord regarding how they dealt with their children. I liked that. We need to see more of this type of parenting in present times. Also, EJ and her brother had a playful love-you-but-you-get-on-my-nerves-but-I-love-you-anyway kind of vibe. I so get that.
- The book was funny. It was downright playful in the most charming way. EJ's imagination was rich. I loved that she still had such a vivid one at eleven. Surely that's rare in this day and age. (I'm kidding_or am I?)
- Each chapter began with those awesome diary entries. EJ poured out her thoughts, allowing us to see who she was. Can I just say how much of a positive I think journaling is? No matter what age or gender you are, having a means to express yourself is always good.
- I appreciated how the book was a compilation of unordinary events and actions. They all linked together and moved in a nice flow toward the BIG news (which, of course, I was not expecting).
- I loved that godly messages and Scripture highlights were weaved into the story. It worked. It was not overly preachy or pushy; it was appropriate. One of my favorite messages related to Susan and how she overcame her fear. The Joshua 1:9 go-to was spot on. I also liked the lesson on pride associated with the snake and the alligator. The way the author communicated the lesson was humorous but just right for kids, as well as adults.
- I loved reading Issac's prayer. Too cute!
- The issues presented in this book would make for great talking points. I could totally see family discussions based around this book. It would be a good resource tool for youth group gatherings, church camp gab sessions, Christian schools, and even counselors/therapists to promote connection and communication.
- I really liked the cliffhanger ending. The book concluded with a selfless positive and it was easy to see that a new season of growth would be coming for all. It got my attention, that's for sure.
4/5 Recommend: Absolutely Y-E-S!
