Faith, Hope and Ivy June is a book I would recommend to upper elementary - middle school girls who like realistic fiction. It is about 2 girls who participate in an exchange program where they each spend 2 weeks with living with the other girl and her family. Catherine lives in a large house in Lexington, a large city with many cultural activities and Ivy June lives in the Mountains in a very primitive home without even a telephone or an indoor bathroom.

I was surprised by this book in that it didn't deal as much with the lifestyle differences as it did. These differences are pointed out, but are not the main focus as I had expected them to be. This was more about how the girls related to each other and dealt with the problems they faced during the time spent at each other's homes.
