The Story
Prairie Evers—Book Review

Ten-year-old Prairie Evers is not a fan of her new school. Having always been homeschooled by her granny, she has learned all she needs to know through the nature all around her. In fact, school makes Prairie feel just as cooped up as her beloved chickens at home. Things begin to look up when she makes her first friend ever--a girl named Ivy. But Prairie soon learns that friendship has its share of ups and downs. When she learns that Ivy's home life is less than ideal, Prairie sets out to help Ivy, determined to make things right.
The Scoop
Prairie Evers—Book Review
{spoiler alert}

This is a feel-good and wholesome book about a ten-year-old girl with admirable characteristics. Prairie, original and true to herself, is a kind and brave character. Her heart of gold, and oddly enough, her relationships with the chickens, is endearing. This book features her strong and supportive family, her loving grandma, and a compassionate friendship. While adjusting to her new school, Prairie encounters a group of mean girls. She is teased about the color of her skin (she is Native American). Her friend, Ivy, has a few skeletons in her closet, which she shares with Prairie. Ivy's mother killed her father years back in a drunken fight. Ivy ultimately goes to live with the Evers family. Prairie has a certain amount of innocence due to being home-schooled, and it is refreshing to see the world through her eyes and watch her grow as the book progresses. This is a great choice for young girls.
