‘Anything But Average’ a Great Read Influenced by Rural Culture

Young Adult Novel 'Anything But Average' by Laureen Muir Heggie. countrybestblog.com

Being as it’s summer, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying sitting in my backyard, bare feet up, and reading a great book as the cowkids play in the sprinkler.

‘Anything But Average’ is one of those great books.

It’s a young adult novel written by the very talented Laureen Muir Heggie. It’s high school in a small southern Alberta town with LDS (Mormon) culture. Ranching, rodeo, and football pride are sported heavily throughout. It is definitely a book that country rural folk can relate deeply with.

Truth be told, I’m not much of a fiction reader/lover unless it’s a children’s book. But. I know Laureen personally, so I knew her book was going to be a good one. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and even finished it within a few days (so NOT like me)! I think because of the rural culture and lifestyle it portrays within it, it just didn’t feel all that fictional to me. It was a page-turner with plenty of dramatic spikes to grab your attention. I usually get sleepy while reading, but this one I actually found myself staying up late just to see what happens next!

In short, it’s one awesome book that I think you just may love too. It’s a must add to your reading list!

When they’re your own.

I’m convinced more and more that kids truly don’t need toys. They find everything they need outside.
