Review Text

This is better teen-typed fiction than most, and the setting this time is Appalachia where Silvy's family makes a penny-by-penny living with a Mountain Crafts tourist stand - sourwood honey and cornhusk dolls. Silvy would like to be a teacher but college via .a scholarship seems impossible except for the gentle shove of the local librarian, the native exhibit at the school and her collaboration with Kel who would like to be a geologist. A little interference is run (to keep the story moving - not too fast); outlanders are quietly put in their place; and the tone is pleasant without too much sugarcured sentimentality.
