I love it when characters explore a new side to themselves, and for suburban 'green teen' Jenna, a summer in the wilds of Western Canada puts her environmental beliefs in a whole different light.
A passionate activist, Jenna has hardly stepped foot in the great outdoors; she's surprised to find the reality isn't quite the soothing Walden fantasy she had in mind. Out of her depth (literally – thanks to a certain kayak incident), Jenna turns to an old survival guide for help, and comes to reassess her black-and-white assumptions – with plenty of hilarious adventures, summer romance, and unexpected friendship along the way.
I think BOYS, BEARS AND A SERIOUS PAIR OF HIKING BOOTS is the perfect summer read, and I'm giving away five copies at random. Contact me by email or twitter for your chance to win!
