Ok. Not my favorite book or first choice to read. The main character's choices just annoyed me.... ( )

Ida B. Applewood has been home-schooled for the last five years. She tried kindergarten but was so unhappy with the rules and regimentation that her parents, apple farmers, decided it would be best if they educated her at home. She’s been blissfully happy ever since. However, now that she’s nine, a big and terrible change has come. “Mama” has been diagnosed with breast cancer, and the treatments she must undergo will not allow her to attend to Ida B.’s instruction. Furthermore, without Ida B.’s mother’s help, “Daddy” will have to do all the farm work himself. The girl has to attend school. What’s more, she has to cope with the fact that in order to pay for her mother’s medical treatment, her father has to sell some of the family’s beloved orchard.

Ida B. is not so self-centered that she is not distressed by her mother’s illness and her father’s sadness, but she feels she must harden her heart and sharpen its edges against the blows she has been dealt. It’s the only way to cope with returning to school.

Once at school, she rejects the warmth of her teacher and the friendliness of the students in her class. She discovers, as well, that it is the family of one of her classmates who has purchased the Applewood land. They’re building a house on the property, and they have cut down the lovely apple trees that were Ida B.’s friends.

It takes effort for Ida B. to maintain her hard-heartedness, and the author is very good at depicting the confusion of emotions in her young protagonist as the girl attempts to cope with significant life changes.

At first, I didn’t like this novel at all. Ida B. is more than a bit precious. She names and talks to trees and brooks, who answer her back, and she’s obviously intended to be a darling, nature-loving eccentric. I don’t see any reason why the author couldn’t have left out these annoyingly twee verbal and behavioral tics. It would have made for a far better novel.

So, in the end, I’ve got mixed feelings about this book for girls 8 to 12 years of age. The strengths of the novel include its sensitive rendering of a child’s emotional turmoil, but, unfortunately, they’re coupled with some of the most irritating and sentimental characteristics of American children’s literature.

Ida B is different than your average kid. She talks to trees for one and she hears them respond back to her. She even has names for them like you have with your dolls or stuffed animals when you are little. At least I did. Anyways one day the trees are silent. She knows something isn't right. Viola speaks first. She's asking about her family and the Paulie T. That punk Paulie T. says that something bad is going to happen. Everyone seems to think that way. And guess what? There right. And it really is pretty horrible that they are right because you already get to like Ida B. from the start. It's Ida B. not Ida. She really doesn't like it when her kindergarten teacher won't call her that. Ida is her Mama's name. She gets this sinking feeling in school and that how her schooling lasts two weeks and three days. Well until she has to go back. Those trees were right. And she builds up this wall and her heart gets hard so all she is committed to do is to get everything back to normal. No matter what!

I love Ida B. Her personality shines throughout the book. I do find her a bit selfish but at other times I agreed with her 100% Sometimes when your life brings you down all you can do is think how unfair things are and that's precisely what Ida B did. She learns some things in the end with the help of one particular person. This was a really good book and I thoroughly enjoyed it and think everyone else will too.

It (my brain) thought about that magic that happens when you tell a story right, and everybody who hears it not only loves the story, but they love you a little bit ,too, for telling it so well.
