Adventure and discover with the bold and intrepid Becket Branch when her family's move from city to a country farm means big changes! Everything is changing for Becket Branch. From subways to sidewalks to safety rules, Becket is a city kid born and raised. Now the Branch family is trading urban bustle for big green fields and moving to Gran's farm, where Becket has to make sense of new routines from feeding animals to baling hay. And as much as Becket loves to yell "Beautiful Alert!" there's a lot about the countryside that is just plain odd. But Becket is ready to put her own spin on country life. Whether selling her mouth-puckering lemonade, feeding hostile hens, or trying to make a best friend of her new neighbor Frieda Franca, Becket is determined to use her city smarts to get a grip on farm living. Laugh and learn with Becket as she mucks through the messy, exuberant human experience of change she didn't ask for, in a story that sparkles with quirky characters and lasting connections.

"Narrator Amielynn Abellera establishes a spirited voice for fourth-grader Rebecca, a city girl whose family is about to move to Blackberry Farm. Rebecca cannot wait to be a country kid--however, once they arrive, she struggles to make friends. So she changes her name to Becket and makes a list of ways to adapt to country life. As Becket meets her new neighbors and tries to win them over, Abellera creates a series of unique voices. From the soft-spoken campers whom Becket tries to befriend to the hospitable farmer who teaches her to drive a tractor, Becket's soon-to-be friends help her adjust to her new home.
