Prairie Evers, by Ellen Airgood
When I asked the girl who introduced me to this book what it was about, she gave me a blank look. I now understand why: it's not really about anything. There's plenty of activity, but no real plot beyond "this is how I survived my first year up north without my Grammy!" More problematic than the lack of a storyline is the lack of development in the characters. It's a pleasant enough story, but rather dull.
