The Story According to Katrina (No Spoilers!)
One year after her father's death, Paige is going through a tough time. She's trying to keep life balanced while helping on the family farm that her father inherited. When her mom and grandpa want to sell the farm, it's up to Paige, her friends, and a local journalist to save the farm.
With lots of crazy, creative ideas and pranks, they try to sabotage an open house and scare away the real estate agent. When that doesn't work, Paige and her friends find a way to look at the situation with creativity. That opens up some possibilities they hadn't even imagined before!
I really like Paige's creativity and imagination- especially the way she comes up with things to do, to try to save the farm. For example, putting a bunch of crickets in the real estate agent's car!
I would recommend this book to my friends because it's interesting and mischievous!
