really liked it
Read in November, 2008

** spoiler alert ** Zoe's mother takes her children to the Midwest to refurbish the rundown family home as a bed and breakfast, leaving her husband the Alaskan fisherman behind. Zoe feels out of place and loses her bearings, and is worried about how her breasts are developing unevenly, but she can't seem to get her mother's attention long enough to ask her about it, so she unintentionally ends up shoplifting some cream that is supposed to help, but she has a severe allergic reaction and almost goes into anaphylactic shock. She returns to the store and admits that she stole from them, is arrested and sentenced to community service at a prairie preserve, where she at last finds some work to ground her and steady her, plus she meets a "wild" boy who loves untamed places and develops a friendship with him. It all doesn't work out as she would like it, and it often seems a bit harsh to me, but that's how life really is sometimes, and it's a great coming-of-age story.
