  1. Catherine Friend

    Catherine Friend had what she calls a boring childhood, but she says that boring was just fine because it gave her time to read She read so much her parents had to set a no reading at the dinner table rule She was slightly shy as a child, but enjoyed playing Beauty Parlor with her sister, taking family trips, and watching STAR TREK and TIME TUNNEL She studied Economics, but because of her love for books and stories, she eventually found herself drawn to writing Since then, the author has written six children s books, including THE PERFECT NEST, a hilarious read aloud illustrated by John Manders and two books in Candlewick s Brand New Readers series She is also the author of the acclaimed adult memoir, HIT BY A FARM HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BARN When it comes to her writing, Catherine Friend likes to try new things and seek new challenges but she always likes to write stories that make her laugh Catherine Friend lives on a small farm in southeastern Minnesota which inspired both THE PERFECT NEST and HIT BY A FARM There, she raises sheep, goats, and llamas, and has an energetic border collie named Robin.

  1. Twelve year old Taylor McNamara has been uprooted from a city of 400,000 to a small town of 7,000 which means she has a lot to navigate First there is making new friends, then figuring out what to do with these friends when there is no mall to hang out at, getting used to living in a home miles away from anyone else, and most of all taking care of farm animals It is her parent s dream to raise animals on their farm, but to make it work financially her father commutes back to his job in the big c [...]


  2. Cute, predictable, nothing mind blowing, but enjoyable The writing style was fine Possibly the best part was no weird, stupid names I m so sick of weird names in j fic Anyway, I did think about Bonnie the whole time they were doing the lamb birth scenes Appropriate for a younger audience of stronger readers She is making poor choices, but ends up turning it around Like I said enjoyable, a nice sweet read about a girl learning to coop with what life s handed her.


  3. This book was a HUGE let down The ending was so boring and girl made some mistakes but everyone was just like whatever I would never suggest or reread this treacherous thing Don t waste your time.

  7. Bravo well done Family stress, new kid at school, and city to country issues, all told with zest and heart There s even a friendship with an older person, lessons in preparing wool towards clothing, a boy, and a school rule about short skirts All in 142 breezy and delightful pages So sad it s short and over already so Sheepish Two Women, Fifty Sheep, and Enough Wool to Save the Planet has been on my list for awhile, now it s a priority

  10. Barn Boot Blues is a cute, easy Middle Grade novel It is relatable to young teens in the categories of starting at a new school and fitting in The main character is just beginning the farm lifestyle, and Friend describes that scene wonderfully and accurately Farm life isn t glamourous, but it has its perks, and that comes across in Friend s writing Being that this is a Middle Grade novel it would have been nice if it was longer 141 pages doesn t give one enough time with the story to really conn [...]


  11. A fun story about a girl whose parents have moved to a farm The transition is difficult for everybody But Taylor has it hardest, going to school after a variety of traumatic experiences being attacked by a duck, being pooped on by chickens, and smelling like the goat she had to wrestle into a truck So she comes up with a plan to convince her parents to move back to the city Will a newfound skill at spinning wool and the imminent arrival of baby lambs be enough to change her mind A fun read and l [...]

  13. I read this book a while ago I don t totally remember it But I don t remember hating it but I don t remember totally falling in love with it It was kinda like a backwards life of Girl Meets Worlds Lucas Friar Because the girl leaves to city and goes to a farm and then she has to deliver a Horse Well I forget what animal it was that the girl had to deliver but it s like Lucas life backwards lol


  14. Only grabbed this one because the author also wrote one of my favorite picture books of all time The Perfect Nest And Catherine Friend did not let me down with her children s novel debut Lots of funny farm shenanigans, including chicken poop in your hair and reeking of goat at your new school And don t be fooled by the cover It is NOT a book just for girls.


  15. Cute story about a girl learning her way around a small town and a farm when her parents move the family to the country farm they bought Taylor is a likeable character, even when she s a little misguided But her heart is in the right place since she just wants her family to be together and happy like they were before the move and the farm.


  16. Barn Boot BluesIn my opinion I loved this book a lot This is one of my favorite books I have ever read in my life before I loved this book because it was interesting and very amusing to me But what I especially liked about this book was that it wasn t boring or discombobulated.


  17. This book is packed with VERY unexpected turns I have now read the book 2 times and still was surprised when she got chomped on by lost and founds mother.I still loved the book in every way But my favorite part was the ending because ruby had three baby lambs.


  18. love the surprise in the end This was such a great book I would recommend it to anyone I get the cover, it makes so much sense now I personally thought that it was hilarious I hope that when you read it you will like it as much as I did.


  19. An appealing story about a 12 year old girl trying to fit in on a farm which her family just bought, and trying to fit in at a new school It is a predictable story that girls will like, and is one that I would have enjoyed as a 10 13 year old.


  20. Mark Twain 2013 4 Cute look at city girl meets rural lifestylewith an ambiguous ending I like that younger readers are exposed to a not so perfect ending they need to learn about loose ends and this is a good way to do it.


  21. My farm town students enjoyed this as a read aloud during summer school I enjoyed hearing their humorous text to self connections I wish there was of a twist throughout the book the plot was very predictable.



  22. This book is so good delightful It is marketed for 8 12 year old girls, so I bought it with sharing it with some of the young girls in my life I know they would really enjoy it


  23. this book is a great book i recomend it to everyone it is just great she in one of my favorite authors she made me fell as if i was in the action.


  24. BooIt was interesting but not enough to keep me interested I stopped half way through I wouldn t recommend itBoo


  25. For the genre contemporary tween fiction it is great Short, sweet, some drama, lots of funny moments included book.
