Poor Zinny. She's one of what feels like 10 children (really it's seven) and she is constantly being asked "which on are you?" Then she discovers a trail that runs from her house to the next village over and she decides to clear it all by herself. Not only is Zinny clearing a trail, she's trying to understand if Jake, the handsome boy at the grocery store, likes her or her older sister, and Zinny is trying to understand her Uncle Nate after the loss of his wife. It all comes tumbling together when Zinny decides to camp along the trail by herself and she discovers that maybe her uncle is really on to something and maybe her aunt is still with us. This is a good read for children that enjoy Appalachian stories and other sentimental stories. Zinny is wants to be independent, but yet she misses her family, which is something readers will relate to as well. All in all, a nice book for a beautiful summer day.
