We’re Doing What for Summer Vacation? is a nonfiction story told by Ali, a typical nine-year-old American girl who spent the summer traveling on a budget across Borneo with her older brother and parents. Ali just wanted to be a normal kid with a normal family spending summer vacation at the beach in Florida. Unfortunately, she has former hippie parents that wanted a big summer adventure. This was not her idea of summer fun! On her adventure, she lived in a tree house, experienced bedbugs, learned a little about Muslim culture, ate strange food, went white-water rafting, got trapped in a stairwell alone and thought she was being kidnapped, trekked in the jungle, saw orangutans, experienced leeches, stayed with the locals in their houses, found real skulls from headhunters, discovered an island of lost children, and went scuba diving with turtles bigger than she was. This story is not your ordinary nonfiction story. It is a quirky journey about a typical girl experiencing a very untypical place.
