Nature Girl By Jane Kelley Book Review

Recently this morning, I just finished reading....

Nature Girl    By Jane Kelley

               The first sentence
                        "Can you hear me now?"

            Summary (from
     Eleven-year-old Megan is stuck in the wilds of Vermont for the summer with no TV, no Internet, no cell phone, and worst of all, no best friend. So when Megan gets lost on the Appalachian Trail with only her little dog, Arp, for company, she decides she might as well hike all the way to Massachusetts where her best friend, Lucy, is spending her summer. Life on the trail isn’t easy, and Megan faces everything from wild animals and raging rivers to tofu jerky and life without bathrooms. Most of all, though, Megan gets to know herself—both who she’s been in the past and who she wants to be in the future—and the journey goes from a spur-of-the-moment lark to a quest to prove herself to Lucy, her family, and the world!

This is a OK book. It's definitely not one of my favorites, and I like the middle and ending-but not so much with the beginning. The cover of the book is OK too. Overall, I think this is an OK and a average book. If you took away all of the first few chapters, maybe it could be even better. This does have a pretty good moral (that you can do anything you put your heart to) but maybe Jane Kelley could improve the beginning a little bit. 

Plot-dog (4 stars)
Character development-cat (5 stars)
Ending-dog (4 stars)
Suspense- fish (2 stars)
Setting/description-hamster (3 stars)
