The Becket List

A Blackberry Farm Story

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.

"Becket is noisy, confident, and full of life, narrating in an enthusiastic first person, present tense. She announces 'Beautiful Alerts' when she sees beauty — a sunset, a thunderstorm, Gran — and says something when she sees something, often to amusing effect ('Stranger Danger!' she warns her mother at the country train station, when a man asks the time). In fact, Becket is a regular laundry list of confidently delivered safety sayings, and it’s just one of her many original and sparkling traits.... Pham’s energetic spot art enhances Griffin’s characterizations." — Kirkus Reviews
