“Prairie Evers so comes to life
in these pages that she might as well step out of it and be your friend.  Preferably your best friend:  strong and true, clear-eyed and funny, through happy times and rough, just as she is for Ivy Blake.  Short of that happening, if you want to know her, you’d better read this wonderful book.”
Lynn Rae Perkins, author of Newbery Medal winner Criss Cross

Prairie Evers

Prairie Evers isn’t finding
school all it’s cracked up to be.

Having been homeschooled, she's learned the most about life and behavior from traipsing through the woods with her grandmother. Now learning is confined to a classroom, and the behavior of some kids isn’t nice. The only good thing is meeting Ivy, her first true friend. Ivy is wonderful, but her home is not. Prairie’s going to need every bit of her optimism and determination to hatch a
plan to help.
