Reviewed by Jessyca Garcia for Readers' Favorite Farm Girl: Rural Life Humor from a Farmer's Daughter by Shanna Hatfield is a laugh out loud, fun read. The book is filled with the author’s memories, written in short story form, about growing up on a farm in Oregon as a little girl. Hatfield shares her version of her adventures and puts a humorous spin on them that makes the reader wish that they too grew up on a farm. Hatfield’s unique, detailed descriptions of her adventures makes Farm Girl come alive. An example of Hatfield’s funny take on situations is this line from when her sister got attacked by a bat in the story, Glamping: “...Dad ordered as he waved his stick at the bat still trying to turn Tallulah into a vampire.” My personal favorite story in Farm Girl was Things That Slither, the story being about snakes and how Hatfield and her family dealt with them. I personally hate snakes but love to know how people deal with them, especially when they sneak into one’s own home. This story alone has made Hatfield a hero in my eyes. I will also forever be checking my surroundings whenever I visit a farm, just to make sure there are no snakes in the room. Farm Girl is a fun read and Hatfield’s love for her father is very obvious. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever grown up on a farm or loves short stories. I would love to read more of Hatfield’s work and see how she takes on the world. I also cannot wait to try the Strawberry Shortcake recipe that is included in the book.
