Fern is a strong willed 5th grade girl who has a lot of responsibility. She is very skilled and knows her away around the forrest by her home like the back of her hand. When her beloved forrest is at risk of disappearing, because of the new fracking company, she must stand her ground and be brave to save it. ( )

Audiobook version. Preteen Fern is a worrier, lives in rural MI with her stepfather after her mother's death by accident, spends most of her free time babysitting her young bratty brothers and foraging in her neighbors old growth forest for food for their table. We hear how one friend has his home burned down & is sent off to a foster home, all of which is irrelevant to the story except for showing how awful the local families are. Her only school friend is an Iraqi girl, so we hear a bit about a different cultural approach to childrearing. Her stepfather has PTSD but apparently isn't receiving any disability benefits since they are constantly being dunned by creditors. Yet when push comes to shove he has no problem getting & holding a steady job at the end which allows him to buy real groceries for a change. One good theme is Fern's acceptance of the bachelor neighbor's suffering over being the cause of her mother's auto accident.
I wish I could say I liked this tale of a girl defending a local natural area from fracking, but too much of the story was unrealistic or just plain false. You don't get an immediate painful blister from touching poison ivy...it sounds like Helget confused wood nettles with poison ivy. Although the season is pretty undefined, there is snow on the ground so any jewelweed (the mentioned antidote to poison ivy) would be dead--yet Fern is able to squeeze a juicy stem to treat someone's painful ivy blister.

A sensitive portrayal of both sides of jobs vs. environment and of impoverishment. One of the best characters is a social worker who was raised in poverty, understands the fears, yet feels the better for knowing how to survive, and passing that onto others. She tells young Fern to never be ashamed of being poor; you are helping your family survive while being strong in yourself. Includes recipes made with wild foods and an Author's Note. ( )
