In a word: refreshing! This was such a wonderful story. As our narrator, Prairie shows us the world - good, bad, and ugly - as a 10-year-old sees it. Whether it is the other citizens of Paltz, NY, or her classmates, you get an honest perspective. There is a nice blend of characters, who, as the story unfolds, may challenge your initial judgement of them. Through Prairie's eyes these people seem real. I, for one, wanted to walk right up to the rude woman in the diner!

Pros: Engaging characters and honest narrative combine in this beautiful, wholesome coming of age story.

The chicken-raising aspect of this story attracted me but it is not just a chicken story. Prairie Evers', an independent-minded girl, adjustment to changes in her life after moving to New Paltz, NY from North Carolina is the center of the story. Prairie and her family are people you want to meet. The story is a nice combination of home life and school life. A quiet gem. ( )

A sweet, spirited ten-year-old embarks upon the adventure of first friendship in this sparkling debut

Prairie Evers is finding that socialization isn't all it's cracked up to be. She's been homeschooled by her granny and has learned the most from traipsing through nature. But now she has to attend public school, and feels just like her chickens--cooped up and subject to the pecking order. School is a jolt for Prairie until she meets Ivy, her first true friend. But while raising chickens and the great outdoors have given Prairie wisdom and perspective, nothing has prepared her for the give and take of friendship. When Prairie finds out that Ivy's home may not be the best place for Ivy, Prairie must corral all her optimism and determination to hatch a plan to help.

Fabulous writing and a narrator full of personality distinguish this lively middle-grade novel.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:55:11 -0400)

"Ten-year-old Prairie is happy being home-schooled and raising her flock of chickens, so transferring to regular school is a big change, but fortunately she meets a wonderful friend"--
