Maaaaaan.................I gotta tell ya about this great little book that I recently finished reading !
Kristen Lenz really knocked it out of the park with this story. This book is a fantastic story of a young lady that grew up unlike most kids that would be classified as "normal". Cara grew up in a "carefree" setting where she learned to embrace everything nature had to offer. She surroundings seemed to be the envy of most any young teenager. After a life changing event, her world seemed to come crashing down around her. Life as she knew it had ended, she was forced to dropped into an environment that seemed to be a prison sentence. Everything she knew to be normal was taken away and she was forced to live in this "picture book world" that was far and away from what she was used to. Turns out that what seemed to be her prison sentence became an open door to a whole new world. Cara was able to experience a whole new world where her past expediences came in quite handy in order to find her new path in life. This young lady learned a lot about herself, her strengths, her assets, her attitude, her family and most importantly, her new path in life.
Kristin has laid things out very nicely in this book. The settings were presented wonderfully. It was with very little effort to envision the scenes in this story. I fell in love with her references to other authors and their works (Thoreau). I always love books in a Michigan setting. The timeline seemed to flow in a chronological order. The chapters seemed to be an excellent length. This book belongs in every young adult readers collection.
It's not easy "fitting in", but it's very possible and well worth it sometimes.
Thank you Kristin Lenz for sharing this little gem with the world.
You can find your copy of this book at any large book chain store, more than likely most independently owned book store and many libraries. If they don't have it on their shelves, ask them to get it !
I'm sure that they would be glad to get it for you !
