This timely coming of age novel takes on the controversial issues of fracking and environmental protection. Stay away from my woods. Eleven-year-old Fern doesn't have the easiest life. Her stepfather is out of work, and she's responsible for putting dinner on the table--not to mention keeping her wild younger brothers out of trouble. The woods near their home is her only refuge, where she finds food and plays with her neighbor's dog. But when a fracking company rolls into town, her special grove could be ripped away, and no one else seems to care. Her stepfather needs the money that a job with the frackers could bring to their family, and her wealthy grandfather likes the business it brings to their town. Even her best friend doesn't understand what the land means to Fern. With no one on her side, how can she save the forest that has protected her for so long? The acclaimed author of Wonder at the Edge of the World weaves a poignant story about life on the poverty line, the environment, friendship and family--and, most of all, finding your place in the world.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Nicole HelgetPublisher: Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersPublished: 06/26/2018ISBN: 9780316245135Pages: 288Weight: 0.50lbsSize: 7.40h x 4.90w x 1.10dAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 189896 / End of the WildReading Level: 4 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 6
