Review: Boys, Bears, and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots (McDonald)

Title: Boys, Bears, and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots
Author: McDonald
Genre: Fiction, Environmental Action
Pages: 293
Rating: 3 out of 5 pages

Jenna convinces her parents to let her spend the summer with her godmother in Canada instead of at grandma's condo in Florida.  Rural Canada seems much more appealing to Jenna who is an ardent vegetarian and environmentalist.  Thrilled at the opportunity for a summer communing with nature, and maybe finding a little romance, Jenna is shocked to discover that her beliefs don't play very well in a community of "real" outdoorsmen. 

This is the latest novel by the author of "Sophomore Switch," which is one of last year's recommendations for summer reading.  You should read both books about girls transplanted into unfamiliar surroundings.
