Publisher Comments:

This unusual novel written partly in blog format (complete with comments posted by the earthgirls followers and detractors) takes the cutting-edge form of an online confessional. The story follows the eco-evolution of 16-year-old Sabine Solomon. When shes blindsided by a driver whose thrown-out McDonalds leftovers leave her covered in plum sauce, Sabine throws the garbage back, causing a clash thats captured on her friends videophones. Quickly the footage is shown on YouTube, and Sabine finds herself at the center of a heated eco-debate. Inspired to greater global consciousness, she goes to work for an organic food co-op and meets charismatic, idealistic eco-warrior Vray Forest. Mesmerized, she vows to change her life and influence others, much to the dismay of her meat-eating family and shopaholic friends. But when Vrays activism takes a dark turn, Sabine must face some difficult decisions. Jennifer Cowans first book presents an endearing, funny, modern heroine — at once smart, curious, self-mocking, and self-righteous — whose story riffs on universal teen dilemmas of peer pressure, first love, and trying to do the right thing.
