A Truly Heartwarming Read That Teen's Will Enjoy!!!  Aug 30, 2005
Thirteen year old Meg is returning to her beloved grandparents island home for summer. The difference with this summer is...she is going to decide where she wants to live. Should she pick her mother, stepfather, and new baby brother/sister? Or will she live with her father who is an Army Colonel and thinking of retiring from his military career? As if this isn't enough for her thirteen year old mind, she now finds a new family living on her grandparents berry farm, and she feels just a little threatned. Is her place about to be taken by this new girl? And what does this mean for Meg? Will she and Tia be able to call each other friend and how will this change Meg?

This is truly a wonderful story about growing up. Meg is not your typical teenager in some ways, and in others she is like every teenager walking the earth. Ms. Byrd has truly captured the angst that everyone feels when put in a new situation that's not familiar or expected. This is really a read that anyone can relate to regardless of age. Although this book does offer a lesson about acceptance and it's also a story of friendship and the precious gift that it offers. This is one author that truly entertains as she teaches. In other words this a read you won't want to miss.

Heartwarming story!  Jun 8, 2005
Sandra Byrd's Island Girl: Friends for a Season is the story of 13-year-old Meg. Each summer Meg travels to Sauvie Island to spend the summer with her father's parents. This summer is different because Meg's mother and stepfather are having a new baby, her father may retire from the Army and return to Sauvie Island to live, and there's a new family from Mexico living on the farm and helping her grandparents.

Meg understands that Papa and Grammy are getting older and need help with the farm. But Meg is not sure how she feels about Tia (the young Mexican girl) and her family. If Tia's family works on the farm, what will her father do if he returns home?

All these questions are important, but Meg has a more difficult decision to make during the summer. She must decide if she will return to her mother and stepfather's home or live with her father, Grammy and Papa.

To Meg's surprise she and Tia make friends and embark on a summer of exploration of friendship, cultural differences, importance of family and a deepening of their faith. Her experiences and relationships contribute to Meg's ultimate decision about where she will live.

This is a genuine and heartwarming story of growing up and having the courage to be real and make difficult choices. I believe adolescent and young teen girls will embrace this book and the message it holds. Island Girl: Friends for a Season is recommended by
