I think what interested my daughter most of all about this book, even before reading it, is that the author is seventeen years old. How cool is it to read a book written by another teen?! That's Not Hay In My Hair by Juliette Turner is about a teen who goes from New York City life to a 300-acre ranch in Texas.
For my "want to live in the country" kid this book quickly drew her in and she stayed up late just to finish it.
While I can't remark on the writing as I haven't read it myself, it clearly interested my 12 year old so it served it's purpose. It gets high marks from others who have critiqued the book so I feel it's a great book to put on your teen's summer reading list. My daughter is hoping that Turner continues on with more books!
This book was given to me by BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
