Seventeen-year-old Jenna may hail from the ’burbs of New Jersey, but environmental activism is her life. So when the opportunity arises to spend the summer in the wilds of Canada with her hippie godmother, Susie, this Green Teen jumps at the chance to explore this nature she’s heard so much about — and the cute, plaid-wearing boys she’s certain roam wild and free. But after a few unpleasant run-ins with local wildlife (from a larger-than-life moose to Susie’s sullen Goth stepdaughter to a hot but hostile boy named Reeve), Jenna realizes that her long-held ideals, like vegetarianism and conservation, don’t play so well with this population of real outdoorsmen. With the help of a dusty survival guide, Jenna begins to navigate the wilderness, and those who call it home — but can she learn to navigate the surprising turns of her heart?

    " Cute for what it is: a light teen romance/realistic novel. Jenna works for her NJ high school's environmental club, but she's not sure she is ready for the wilds of British Columbia when she is farmed off by parents who might or might not be getting a divorce. Staying with a godmother who is nearly married and working hard to open a Bed and Breakfast while coping with a miserable new step-daughter, Jenna she's what it's like to get up close and personal with woods, mountains, moose, and the local boys. She affects her new environment and is affected by it. Ultimately, it has some laughs, romance, and a message. "

    " It took me a while to get into it, but the story ended up having more substance than I expected. I'm not sure I could fully believe the developments with Jenn'a best friend, but the rest of the story was satisfying. Environmental activism, divorce, fitting in, sexuality... lots of ground covered. "

    " Kind of cute, has its moments, but some serious boring lulls here and there. "
