Little Blog on the Prairie by Cathleen Davit Bell
This is a really cute book for middle school age girls. It is about a middle school girl named Gen whose mother has decided that this year's vacation they will go to Camp Frontier, where they will live like they are 1890 pioneers. They compete with the other families there in an attempt to live authentically and improve their farm and at the same time learn about themselves, get to know each other in their family, and Gen, who has snuck in a cell phone, blogs about the whole experience to her friends. It is interesting when the couple who runs the camp finds out what is really going on.
