Overview

Finish the fifth grade: Check!
Start summer break: Check!
Spend summer break with Tom and Gina: Wait! What?!


When eleven-year-old Ryan Ericksen learns he'll be spending three months helping his aunt and uncle on their chicken farm, he thinks his whole summer break is ruined.

No more playing video games or having super-soaker fights with his older brother. Nope. He'll be stuck on the eastern plains of Colorado with five hundred stupid, crummy chickens.

Little does he know, his life is about to change in a big way. Maybe life isn't always as bad as he expects. And maybe there are things in life worth fighting for, even when obstacles and heartache are there at every turn.

But when disaster strikes at the farm, will he have the courage to risk his neck for a cause greater than himself? Or will he chicken out when everyone needs him the most?

Chickens, Girls, and Other Life Problems is a contemporary coming-of-age middle-grade novel for both boys and girls (ages 8 to 12).

About the Author

Louise Nelson (pen name for Jody Calkins) grew up in the Minnesotan woods and now lives in rural Virginia with her family. She has a degree in classical studies and literature, loves studying languages, and writes novels for children and teenagers.

She and her husband owned a small chicken farm in Colorado for a few years. And that’s where she got the inspiration to write Chickens, Girls, and Other Life Problems. Needless to say, she knows a thing or two about taking care of five hundred “stupid, crummy” chickens.
