A cross-country adventure between an elderly woman and her driver, Jenna Boller. Great book for teens.
This was a pretty good book!! It kept my interest, although in some sections you really kind of have to stick with and hang in there, it does get better!! This book also has a sequal: "Best foot forward" which is also not disapointing.
Jenna Boller is the best employee at her branch of Gladstone's Shoes---she can sell anybody anything. But her family problems are harder to solve, and there are times when Jenna wishes she could just get out of town and take a break. So when Madeline Gladstone, the elderly president of Gladstone Shoe Stores, hires Jenna as her driver for the Summer, Jenna leaps at the chance.
And that begins a cross-country adventure from Chicago to Dallas, where she and Mrs. Gladstone learn a lot about the rules of the road, and the rules of life.
Great young adult book, discussing real issues.
Rules of the road,
Anywhere, from ages 9+
It touched me closely.
I was HER.
She was ME.
She enjoys her life.
And then she doesn't.
Her father isn't her CLOSEST companion.
But that makes total sense.
I highly suggest reading this book. Or giving
it as a gift.
It is wonderful!
