The book is a delightful easy read that sows how much can be done by everyone to help make sure that we have a beautiful and healthy world around us
We are introduced to the children of Birch Green High School, some of whom are pretty dangerous characters. There is bullying, not so petty crime and back stories of dysfunctional family life. In the midst of all this, Molly Pearson pursues her ambitions to engage the interest of her students with heroic enthusiasm. The clearing of a nature corner and the building of a bird-watching hide become her main focus as she enlists help from her very willing students and her colleagues. She is mostly unaware of the drama that is building in the background.
If you like a little romance - cue Oliver Shrimpton – a good looking journalist who comes to the school to research a story for the local paper. It turns out that Molly is human, after all…
I have to admit that there were times when I thought ‘please don’t give me the lesson scripted word for word!’ It was strange to hear the author’s voice coming through so clearly. And it was odd to be spoken to as though I were a child at school.
If you like a story with original characters (the children are very well drawn) and the liberal use of rose coloured glasses, this one is for you.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
As with "So What!", this book is peppered with UK-specific reference points which I enjoyed quite a bit, although I can imagine certain readers might object to them somewhat. Personally, when I read a book written by, for example, a Japanese author, the unique cultural reference points and the texture of the setting are sometimes the elements I find most interesting. I would feel pretty short-changed - especially in the age of lightning fast search engines - if those elements were ironed out in order to make it more palatable for an international audience.
For me, this book is a touch stronger than the original (which I also enjoyed), and I would be interested to see where the author takes the characters if he decides to write a third.
At the heart of the story is a strong moral of protecting wildlife. The heroine is the Birch Green High School's young biology teacher, Miss Molly Pearson, who takes students (7th grade, 11-year olds) on a class trip to Lime Moss Nature Park and decides on restoring a vacant `nature' lot on school property into a natural habitat for everything from insects, worms, snails, mice, frogs, birds, butterflies, lizards and snakes i.e. a garden for things we don't even notice that exist and which thrive off natural green areas and give us a sense of peace and relaxation. There's fund raising - twice (courtesy the mysterious fire) - of thousands of pounds to create the `bird hide' called Hodgson's Hide. Once done, Pearson gives a presentation with 12 slides of plants and animals. She also falls for a journalist named Shrimp - Oliver Shrimpton to be exact -(a most-unfortunate name for the guy) - and they live happily ever after in a cottage in Derbyshire.
I received a free copy of the book in exchange for a fair, unbiased and non-reciprocal review.
