Dear Reader:

Huddled in a damp tent in middle of the Canadian Rockies, I decided - the wilderness has a lot to answer for. As much as I love the *idea* of gorgeous scenery, the reality is always wetter, colder, and way itchier than my fantasies. That's when I dreamed up Jenna: the Jersey girl who is a passionate environmentalist, but has never actually ventured into the great outdoors.

Spending the summer in Stillwater, British Columbia (pop. 423, and one grouchy moose) our 'green teen' does battle with rudimentary showers, cute (but unfriendly) local boys, and her own deeply-held beliefs - with hilarious results.

Packed with romance, adventure, and unexpected friendships: BOYS, BEARS AND A SERIOUS PAIR OF HIKING BOOTS is the perfect summer read. I'm giving away five copies chosen randomly. Contact me by email or twitter for your chance to win!
