Such a great read
on June 12, 2014
To Begin: This is more of a middle grade book, and I knew that going into it, but I wanted to get it because I can relate to it. My dad has a farm and he raises beef cattle, too, so I've grown up around this type of thing.
Characters: Libby was a wonderful character. She was well defined, and you can relate to her, and see where she's coming from with the issues she deals with in this book. However, I felt like the adults in the book - her mother, her father, and her grandfather, for the most part - were very unrealistic. They pretty much did whatever Libby or her sister wanted them to, and they just didn't act like normal parents or grandparents. I saw it more with Libby's parents, but at times her grandfather got that way, too.
Plot: Loved the plot. It was wonderful, and also very original. And that's pretty much all I have to say about that. xD
Wow Factor: For the most part, I was pretty wowed by this book. I loved how it was set in the country, how it revolved around farming and raising beef cattle, and how it dealt with 4-H and a girl raising her own show cattle. 4 hearts.
