Little Blog on the Prairie by Cathleen Bell

Bell, Cathleen Davitt Little Blog on the Prairie, 288 p. Bloomsbury, MAY 2010. $16.99. Content: G. Usually family vacation consists of beautiful beaches and lush reorts – Gen, her brother and her father should have paid better attention when Mom was making this year’s plans. Now the whole family is stuck in 1890 – well, almost. How about a horribly icky recreation site, where they live without electricity, conveniences, and lots of back-breaking chores. And Gen’s family aren’t the only ones being thus tortured – meet Caleb, a hottie, Ka, a 12 year old goth and Rebecca – the camp directors’ daughter, who has lived this way since she was small. Well – almost. Gen snuck in a cell phone and Rebecca has access to electricity and the internet. How much trouble can Gen cause this summer? Plenty! Gen, her family and her friends are entertaining and exasperating all at the same time. I can’t imagine voluntarily going to such a place for the summer – but I certainly enjoyed reading about this group! EL, MS – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library Teacher.
