The land was theirs, but so were its hardships. Strawberries - big, ripe, and juicy. Ten-year-old Birdie Boyer can hardly wait to start picking them. But her family has just moved to the Florida backwoods, and they haven't even begun their planting. "Don't count your biddies 'fore they're hatched, gal young un!" her father tells her.
Making the new farm prosper is not easy. There is heat to suffer through, and droughts, and cold snaps. And, perhaps most worrisome of all for the Boyers, there are rowdy neighbors, just itching to start a feud.

"We read this book on a road trip"
We just finished this book on a road trip. It made the hours fly by.
"Nom Nom Nom I ate it up"
Ok so I literally ate it up i ground It down, put it in soup, and ate it after killing six hogs and burning a family's home to the ground.
IT WAS AWESOME LIKE AMAZING inspiring, so I'm twelve right and a boy none the less so you know books about little girls picking strawberries REALLY I mean come on I was miserable when I was told I had to read it. THEN I read it and it blew me away and I mean like 🤗😇😱👊🏼 kinda inspiration. So I encourage you to read it it's well worth a credit and whatever else you wanna give. Lois Lenski may be dead in a hole somewhere in flo rida's house singing good feeling but Matt Damon could that PHSYCO write inspiration! SO TAKE ONLY THIS FROM THE BOOK IT TASTES LIKE STRAWBERRIES AND NUCA COLA FROM FALLOUT 4 btw if a person named even Roth reads this I'll tell you I do not know you I am just telepathic
