I have to be honest and say that I know the author, but this book is wonderful for a young adult reader.

She caught her up at 1 a.m. on a school night, unable to put down this book until she finished it. Seriously, doesn't she owe me a dozen roses?

I think students of many different backgrounds would enjoy this book because of that theme alone.

Zoey's grandmother is half Choctaw and Chickasaw, both tribes with history in Tennessee. But Zoey doesn't have much pride in her heritage until she takes a field trip to Reelfoot Lake, TN and finds she has played a major part in her family's destiny. The author use historical events, including the earthquakes of 1811 and 1812 as the center point for this story.
