unruly teenager named Edna who discoversthan she could have ever imagined during her summer expulsion to the desert.After being a disciplinary nightmare, 13 year old Edna finds herself in the middle of nowhere sentenced to spend the entire summer with her grandparents Edna has no idea how she will survive, but quickly discovers that her teenage dramatics have no effect on Grandma Mary She attempts to runaway and die in the barren desert, but is rescued by a boy named Johnny Ultimately, this encounter with Johnny changes everything and Edna experiences a summer she will not soon forget.Edna in the Desert is a story that is very close to my heart After experiencing many of the same teenage attitudes Edna s parents dealt with in the story, we also sent our daughter to spend time with her grandparents This decision essentially changed the outcome of her life, an outcome we are all very proud of today It is easy to say that I greatly enjoyed this story There is humor, love, and ultimately an awakening that effects the entire family As a teen, Edna experiences the most dramatic change but her grandmother undergoes a change that can only be credited to the summer spent with Edna.Edna in the Dessert is a well written story with easily likable characters that help create a story that is difficult to put down I highly recommend picking up a copy First of all massive apologies to the author for taking so long to review this paperback book which she posted to me ages ago I will admit that the cover didn t particularly grab me, and it has sat in my to read pile for an eternity until one day I idly picked it upand then couldn t put it down Told from the heroine s point of view, Edna in the Desert is the most hilarious and realistic Young Adult book that I have read in a VERY LONG TIME As a parent of a 16 year old son, and a 9 year old First of all massive apologies to the author for taking so long to review this paperback book which she posted to me ages ago I will admit that the cover didn t particularly grab me, and it has sat in my to read pile for an eternity until one day I idly picked it upand then couldn t put it down Told from the heroine s point of view, Edna in the Desert is the most hilarious and realistic Young Adult book that I have read in a VERY LONG TIME As a parent of a 16 year old son, and a 9 year old daughter who thinks she is a teenager, the precocious but incredibly loveable Edna really struck a chord with me From the moment her desperate parents dropped her off with grandma and grandpa at their somewhat basic home in the Mojave Desert for the summer, right up until her final few moments waiting to be picked back up, I was completely gripped by her journey.Stuck in the desert with her least favourite and uncool Grandma who spends all her time caring for her grandpa A war veteran, who is suffering from some kind of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Edna has a lot of growing up to do, and while the process was at times incredibly painful for her, it was beautiful as a reader to read.It is very rare for an author to actually get inside the head of a teenager and Lederman pulls this off spectacularly Most Y.A books have that adult writing as a teenager feel about them, but Edna s voice is so strong and compelling that I definitely felt as if I was being given a tour of the teenage mind.All of the characters are beautifully written and there is something for everything in this book, and I will be keeping hold of my copy and passing it onto my daughter when she is old enough to appreciate it The only downside to the plot was that I couldn t quite understand why given how they knew how hard life was for Edna s grandma, why her parents didn t do a lotto help her out Edna In The Desert certainly was a hit I was able to relate to the main character, not because I was like her, but because I have been graced with children like her in my life That whole chip on the shoulder smart aleck attitude grows tiresome very quickly but there is always a reason behind it and it is usually not what you d expect Once the layers of Edna are peeled away and her heart is revealed, you see a glistening of hope there She comes a long way in the book and I d like to read Edna In The Desert certainly was a hit I was able to relate to the main character, not because I was like her, but because I have been graced with children like her in my life That whole chip on the shoulder smart aleck attitude grows tiresome very quickly but there is always a reason behind it and it is usually not what you d expect Once the layers of Edna are peeled away and her heart is revealed, you see a glistening of hope there She comes a long way in the book and I d like to read the rest of her story.My favorite character is Grandma Strong and rather stoic, she carries on, taking Edna for the summer She can usually see right through Edna, and does what s best for her without too much of a fuss Edna is used to being able to debate and manipulate people and situations to get what she wants She is stumped by Grandma.It is definitely something I would have enjoyed as a young teen because of the relationship Edna has with Johnny the crush on the older boy I was given a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review I would recommend it This book didn t spend nearly enough time talking about the author

Ezekiel 16 28 In fact, speaking of old Zeke, Edna and her dirty desert diary made me feel like that Kardashian Kim and Kris of course part of Ezekiel whenthey Oholah and Oholibah committed whoredoms in Egypt they committed whoredoms in their youth there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised the teats of their virginityEzekiel 23 3 In some cold river ways, it kinda reminded me of this early Christian mosaic and the Holy D of religious figures I refuse to follow eLectio s guidelines on quoting scripture I will ExCITE the OLD LETCHtestament how, when and where it tickles me In Hebrew Oholah means her tent , and Oholibah means my tent is in her I was hoping forOT subtext with Edna, especially since Edna Hebrew is a female given name originating from several languages In Hebrew, it means pleasure See I only wanted this book to give me pleasure But it WASN T pleasure in a desert It wasn t an oasis filled with lush trees, figs and honey It was no Ein Gedi It was only a mirage that left me drinking dust It was a harsh and arid text where pleasure wanders off alone to wither and die
