Wow! What a read! I am a teacher of middle school students, and a mother of three. This wonderful gem of a book came to us as a gift from my daughter's friend. Franny is a bold, courageous 13 year old girl who lives a perfect life in a perfect family. Until Lucas Dunn moves in next door. The two become close friends, and Franny begins to feel herself trusting this kind and handsome new stranger. Together they work to rescue wild animals in need during the harsh summer drought that impacts their rural Oklahoma town. But Lucas is keeping a dark secret, one that threatens Franny, her family, and Lucas himself. Does she have the courage to speak up for what she knows is right, even if it means betraying a friend she loves? Her crazy friend Pearl will keep you laughing out loud, and is the perfect sidekick, providing a wonderful depth of humor to the story. Franny's family is equally entertaining. Her 'professional teenager' sister Sidda allows us to view the complexities of teenage sister relationships, while her mischievious little brother Ben will keep you smiling at his playful antics. I loved how the story detailed the family relationships and the bonds of friendships, who often become our family. The animal characters are scene stealers, providing a sense of the fragility of life and the beauty of it. Animal lovers will adore this story. McKinnon got great reviews on this, and I see why. Her writing is beautiful, descriptive and sensitive to a tough topic. She made me laugh and cry at once. I loved this book and shared it with my older daughter and son. What a super read for summer, for family, friends or the classroom.
