Seventeen -year-old Jenna may hail from the a€˜burbs of New Jersey, but Green Teen activism is her life. So when her mom suggests they spend the summer at Grandmaa€™s Florida condo, Jenna pleads to visit her hippie godmother, Susie, up in rural Canada. Jenna is psyched at the chance to commune with this nature she's heard so much abouta€”and the cute, plaid-wearing boys she's certain must roam there. But after a few unpleasant run-ins with local wildlife (from a moose called Madge to Susie's sullen Goth stepdaughter to a hot but hostile boy named Reeve), Jenna gets the idea that her long-held ideals, like vegetarianism and conservation, don't play so well with this population of real outdoorsmen. A dusty survival guide offers Jenna amusing tips on navigating the wilderness, and those who call it homea€”but can she learn to navigate the surprising turns of her heart?But how am I supposed to pay for it, eh? ... I know people sell out their principles for an easy life all the time, but I cana#39;t believe someone as passionate as Jeremiah B. ... a€œSometimes, kid, your ideals dona#39;t make a damn bit of difference.
