Barn Boot Blues by Catherine Friend, 142 pages, read by Leslie, on 11/17/2012

Barn Boot Blues

When her parents swap urban life in Minneapolis for rural life on a farm 100 miles away, twelve-year-old Taylor feels as if she is living on another planet.

Another girl on a farm book, but I enjoyed this as much as the other.  It’s difficult transition as a child to move, and probably more difficult when you aren’t sure you will ever fit in or remember to take your barn boots off before getting on the school bus!  A cute story of perseverance and pluckiness that will appeal to girls.
