This was another title I was given to read for Children's Book Day. I seriously doubt I'd have picked it up otherwise, but I'm glad I read it - it was really enjoyable.
I can see it being a made-for-TV movie.
The characters are easy to identify with. Even though some of them start off fairly stereotypical, they develop during the course of the story.
A real 'feel good' story. ( )

Everyone at school knows she's a weirdo: six foot tall and angry, the only conversations she has are with the twelve cows on her dad's farm. But with her abrupt arrival in Gemma's life, everything starts to look different. And with her only friends in mortal danger of the abattoir, it turns out she and Gemma have a mission on their hands.… (more)
