    " Just a nice quiet YA book- not a lot of drama, yet definite teen appeal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 2/7/2014

    " This is one book that you can't judge by it's cover. I thought it would be silly but it ended up being a great book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 1/19/2014

    " A sweet middle grade read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ricki | 12/29/2013

    " I enjoyed this novel, and it will be a good read for the kids in the ag division in my school. From the No-Jesus Parade to the raising of a rooster, the book gives the reader a taste of life in Texas. The novel is fun and light, and I enjoyed reading it out in the sun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 12/28/2013

    " Sweet story about Austin Gray who wants to be on a float in the annual holiday parade, not just standing on the curb. She decides the quickest way to her dream is by joining the Future Farmers of America and raising an animal. During her journey she learns things about herself, her momma, her dead father and friendship. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daria | 12/23/2013

    " This gets a 3.5 from me. Jill Alexander has a Joan Bauer-esque style that I really enjoyed--quirky female protagonist facing some tough challenges and interesting supporting characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 12/23/2013

    " Just plain great. I really liked all of the characters, and the setting was so well done. I did think, however, that Dean Ottmer needed more than just one punch in the face. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlotte | 12/20/2013

    " Fun, kinda quirky good read. Liked the characters. Loved the Texas feel to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon Lawler | 11/11/2013

    " Loved reading this--captured high school in a small town to a "t". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail Zachariah | 11/10/2013

    " This is a sweet story that will have broad girl appeal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie | 11/7/2013

    " I met the author's husband at the Beijing airport and we started talking books. He gave me a signed copy of the book---thank you mr. Alexander! Really cute young YA book. As a mother of four daughters I highly recommend this to all middle school girls. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 10/2/2013

    " This book reminds me of East Texas and the FFA. The main character learns a lot about herself and what happened to her father. She figures out why her mother is so overprotective. A very interesting book. Love her chicken Charles Dickens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana Tiffany | 1/15/2013

    " Austin decides that her life will be so much better if she becomes the FFA Sweetheart for her county. She raises a rooster and also begins hanging out with the other FFA students. Along the way she struggles with questions about her father's death and her mother's unwillingness to talk about it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 9/12/2012

    " I absolutely loved this book. As an Ag student at my high school and a member of the FFA, I felt that I could really connect with this story. This read is a must for anyone who finds comfort in wearing plaid shirts and jeans and/or has every wanted to stand out. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jrcronewillis Crone-Willis | 9/4/2012

    " A fast YA read that continued my day of Chicken-themed media (I watched the Natural History of the Chicken shortly before I picked up this book). It's a sweet story of a young lady coming into her own. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 7/26/2012

    " This was one of my favorites for this year's list! I LOVED IT! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ladawn | 12/26/2011

    " I really enjoyed this uplifting and endearing book by local author Jill Alexander. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 12/2/2011

    " I really liked this quirky story of one girl gaining confidence in herself. It was reminiscent of "Dairy Queen" by Catherine Murdock that I also loved. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 5/25/2011

    " Cute little book, a fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhonda | 5/19/2011

    " Loved this book about a teenage girl trying to find freedom from over-protective mother. She finds a new friend in southern soul her once was connected with her deceased father. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olivia | 3/29/2011

    " This was a good book but the first couple of chapters are kind of boring. Once you get farther into the book it gets a lot better. I also didn't really like any of the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abbey | 3/2/2011

    " I liked it! Short but sweet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 2/28/2011

    " It was okay. I liked the brief humor and LOVED Louis, but I think it could've used a bit more romance. (I mean WHAT happens with her and Josh?????) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/9/2011

    " Good contrast of Creole vs Hispanic culture. That reinforces the main character's need to be true to herself & her heritage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/18/2011

    " Being a country girl from rural Mississippi who grew up in 4H, this book hit home for me. It's nice to see a book depicting FFA kids in a good light instead of making fun of them and calling them hicks. I can't wait to read more from Miss Alexander. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey | 1/8/2011

    " I Loved this book...I could hardley put it down without wanting to continue reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelsey | 12/24/2010

    " Good, but a little too small town girl for me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 12/16/2010

    " "Pray the problem".

    I didn't find Austin to be as quirky as she thought she was...overall, it was enjoyable and I was glad to spend time with these characters. "
