City girl, country guy. Will opposites attract—or clash?
When New-York-City girl Emily visits her cousin Janelle in Oregon, Emily wonders how she’ll survive the wilderness. Janelle wonders if the wilderness will survive Emily’s visit—and if she can convince her cousin to help save part of an old-growth forest.
Meanwhile, Emily also wonders if a big-city girl can get along with a county guy—named Bret. Under forest canopies and by crystal-clear waters she struggles with her growing attraction to him. But they’re so different. Whoever thought she’d fall for someone like him?
New York tween, Emily, is delighted to spend a couple weeks with her aunt in Los Angeles while her parents enjoy a second honeymoon in Paris. She is decidedly not excited when plans are changed and she is shipped off to different relatives in the middle-of-nowhere Oregon. Thankfully for her Aunt Carolee and Uncle Ned, Emily plans to prove her parents wrong by saying yes to everything her relatives suggest…even if it kills her!
“You catch ‘em, you clean ‘em.” –Uncle Ned
Emily and her cousin Janelle are typical teens who take advantage of free makeovers at the cosmetic counter at the department store and want to catch the eye of the cute boys in town. They differ greatly in their appreciation of nature. Janelle is desperate to stop the development of an open area near town, whereas Emily—at least at first—likes to appreciate nature at arm’s length (as in from the pool deck at a fancy resort). Naturally, by the end of the story, Emily has grown fond of not only a boy in town but of the raw beauty of the wilderness.
“Mating? I sighed. Well, my folks said this trip would be educational.”
Herrick has captured the quintessential tween who wants to feel like a grown-up, cares deeply about causes they take up, and desperately wants boys to start to notice them.
“I never thought that before I left here, I’d fall for a guy in Oregon and worry about saving a forest.” –Emily
Herrick is known for her clean teen romances. In addition to providing a sweet, innocent romance, she has peppered her story with a good dose of humor and strong messages about protecting wildlife and their natural habitat.
