Tokyopop's Cine-Manga line pretty much takes a movie or TV show and puts stills on the page, captioning them with dialogue from the original source. Camp Rock is one such book. Fans of the made-for-TV Disney Channel movie will enjoy having a version that they can enjoy at any time.

The story follows Mitchie Torres, a songwriter who wants more than anything to attend Camp Rock. However, family finances will not allow it. Her chance comes when her mom gets hired on as the camp's cook, but Mitchie is ashamed of her humble background when around the richer campers. Through the camp director's bad boy popstar nephew, Mitchie learns a valuable lesson about being herself.

The lesson learned is a good one, especially for middle readers and preteens, and the volume reads quickly, making it fit in easily between more required reading. Younger readers will enjoy this easy-to-read format of Disney's Camp Rock, but older readers will find it lacking depth.
