Reviews

Gr 7-10-Routine and predictability are the backbone of 17-year-old Destiny Faraday's days at Hedgebrook Academy in Mary E. Pearson's novel (Holt, 2009). She has everything down to a system guaranteed to keep her from getting too close to anyone because, after all, she may not be here that long. Destiny's life has been a long series of boarding schools ever since her parents sent her away at age 7. But one day unexpected things begin to happen. Destiny crumples the calendar page, gets unsettling news at breakfast, cuts class to go to the garden, meets a mysterious stranger, and finds a car running in the driveway. Destiny and three other students take off on an unauthorized road trip searching for that "one fair day" where the good guys win and everything is just and right.ÅWhat ensues is a touching, often funny, sometimes enlightening, and often improbably strange day.ÅJeannie Stith perfectly portrays all the characters.-Cynde Suite, Bartow County Public Library System, Cartersville, GA Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
