    My daughter and I just finished reading this book, and I would have to say that this novel is "refreshing." Most of the books we've read in our club have been the popular fiction or fantasy novels. Many of the female characters are weak, fall into stereotypes, and show girls how to give up themselves for guys. Sorry, can't have my daughter indulging in the self-deprecating-I-am-nothing without-Edward Twilight series. I use the word refreshing because Sadie deals with "real" problems: relocation, mother's issue, acceptance, and friendship. She is finding herself in a new environment. The author writes this story without sacrificing the story. She didn't bury Sadie's journey in drama or sensationalism-what unfortunately many young girls are reading. Thank you for providing a story from a different perspective for our girls.

    I live where bears are an issue, just as they are in Sadie's new town.
    The author captures the essence of the conflict and shows both sides
    (although it's clear where her bias is) through Sadie's experiences --
    both realistic and engaging! I'm glad to meet Sadie and I'm looking
    forward to reading more about her world. It's great to find a series
    that's not all wrapped up in the latest book trends (no vampires here!).
    Pick this one up if you're ready to read something with heart.

    Its okay

    Review:
    I couldn't finish this book. I had requested it on NetGalley thinking I would like it, but I got halfway through and was just so bored. I couldn't read another page of the book. I don't know why it was like that, it could have been because it was from a seventh graders POV and it just seemed like petty drama to me.

    Cover: I actually like the cover. It's cute and simple and it looks like a book for middle school kids. Which is the intended age group. It's captures a young girls thoughts perfectly.

    Plot: The plot was dull and boring. The most drama filled thing was a killing of a bear, and that was repeated multiply times. Which got old after a while. Everything seemed like petty little things, and much of the drama was really immature for kids their age.

    Characters: Sadie's character was really strong for someone who was dealing with so much poop. Which was really nice. But she was also a little boring herself. She had some really deep thoughts, that made her think.

    All in all: I didn't really like this book. There were some good parts, but I also couldn't finish it. 11 out of 51 tacos, just because I couldn't finish it.
