Ten Miles Past Normal, by Frances O’Roark Dowell.
- Easy-going, sweet story about a girl coming into her own.
- Realistic portrayal of friends growing apart and new friends being made without Huge Theatrical Drama.
- Set on a farm, with details about sustainable living and the environment, but never preachy or didactic.
- Janie’s problems are not solved — or created — by romance. In fact, she makes a friend! Who’s a guy! And yes, there is some tension, but it all works out in a comfortable-yet-refreshing way.
- Nada, unless you’re looking for something like Dovey Coe. Which this book is not.
