Format: Hardcover
This book was a fantastic read. It's all about four troubled teen girls who go on a farm and learn a variety of life lessons. Some of the issues reviewed include addiction, abuse, and homophobia. Although touching upon various dark issues, it does not get to the point where it is inappropriate for YA readers. My favorite thing about this book is that unlike most novels oriented towards teen girls, this book teaches that meaning in life and self worth do not come from finding a boyfriend. I would recommend this book to girls/ young women between the ages of 15 and 20. I really enjoyed reading it!

This book is worth reading just for the girls in it. The charcher are well rounded and fun to read about. This has a better re-read value than you might think and I can't wait to read whatever she comes up with next.

Oh and just for the record I PAID for a copy for myself when I could just read my friends copy.

Format: Hardcover
The four juvenile offenders (Sarah, Jenna, Lauren, and Cassie) were given a choice between detention in a prison or working on a farm to learn responsibility and accountability for themselves and others. Each joined the experimental program at an organic farm with no electronic devices allowed run by Grace and assisted by Ellie and Donna.

As the teens work on the farm and attend group and individual therapy sessions, each tells a similar tale of horror of neglect and abuse; none had a childhood beyond survival. Sarah, Jenna, and Cassie begin to heal by letting go of their anger as they become friends. However, Lauren's rage remains stratospheric and her need to destroy others like others destroyed her remains intense. She schemes to insure the experiment fails and her farmer overseers punished just like she has been.

The magnificent seven make for an insightful look at the psyche of the battered angry teens and the motivations of the adults. Rotating perspective, readers see the inner essence of each of the seven especially the negativity that their respective pasts haunting them; the child is the teen and adult. Although the climax seems melodramatically forced and obvious relatively early on, readers will appreciate this profound look at the souls of the battered who work hard at surviving.
