I enjoyed this book. It is a little young for high schoolers, but it was still good. Janie Gorman is a freshman who lives on a goat farm. She feels awkward, and is struggling to find her place in a new, big school where having hay in her hair or goat poop on her shoes isolates her from others. The plot isn't amazing but it was still good.
I would describe this as Nilla Wafers, my favorite snack when I was little. It is sweet and reminiscent of simpler sweeter times. Over all I would give this a 4, because I love those books that are short and sweet, without all the drama and over the top problems that most YA books are characterized by.
