New York Times bestselling author Frances O’Roark Dowell has garnered the Edgar Award and the Christopher Medal for her keen-eyed, humorous fiction. Embarrassed by her family’s offbeat lifestyle, Janie Gorman lives with her modern-hippy parents on a rustic goat farm. Smart, creative, and a bit quirky, Janie longs to be seen as normal. But having to milk goats every day is not helping her reach that goal.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michaelann | 11/7/2011

    " loved it ... heroine was clear-voiced and fantastic. funny, inspired ... high school relationships seemed spot-on. the weaving of local history might have been a little contrived but it really worked for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/5/2011

    " Hand this one to all 11-12 year old girls. An excellent story on being yourself. And quite sweet, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenna | 10/25/2011

    " A teen must deal with her embarrassing family, making new friends at school and a possible new crush, all before her birthday celebration on the family's farm. "

    " I thought it was good but not great "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maddie | 10/19/2011

    " Great book about a girl trying to find her true self through a hard summer and year! I really empathized with the main character. This book is amazing and a great story! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 10/16/2011

    " While this book didn't have a wow factor, it is nonetheless a sweet story about finding a niche in high school while maintaining your own identity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joann | 10/5/2011

    " I read a lot of young adult literature so I can recommend books to my students, and this one is the most fun I've had reading a YA novel in a long time. Quirky, funny, and real. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 10/3/2011

    " ok -- a bit predictable. My favorite book of Frances O'Roark Dowell is still Shooting the Moon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 10/2/2011

    " A fun read with a well-voiced main character in Janie. This is a good one for those who liked The Dairy Queen. Perfect for younger ya readers, especially those looking for a story about being a little different in a new environment (this gal's the farm girl in her new high school).

    "

    " Blah. Sometimes I can't believe the good ratings people give, like they've never read any other book and thus don't know any better. Nothing in the first fourth could capture my interest. The characterization was weak, the story seemed weak (conflict, anyone?), etc. Sorry to be a hater. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kbrown | 9/21/2011

    " Really enjoyed it! Am going to recommend it to my niece. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 drozda | 9/5/2011

    " If I had a child Janie's age she would most likely consider me an embarrassing "modern hippy" sans goat farm...
    "Maybe life's little detours are not about missing out, but about finding a new way home."

    Charmed indeed. "
