Today we're going to learn more about Rebel Ferguson from Beverly Stowe McClure's Rebel in Blue Jeans. We reviewed this title here.
For whatever reason, whenever I read the title of this book out loud, I automatically think of the song Forever in Blue Jeans by Neil Diamond. Whoops, I just showed my age there. LOL! I hope you enjoy learning more about Rebel as much as I enjoyed reading her story.
Name: Rebel Ferguson Age: 16 Born: Whispering Springs, TX Loves: Most animals and her friends Hates: Snakes and drummers in rock bands Dreams: Long term: To be a veterinarian Immediate: Get her parents back together
Favorite things to do: Ride her mare, Sunrise, swim, shop with her friend, Josie, and play with her puppies and cat. She also rehabilitates wildlife and loves to tease the Garret boys.
Rebel, the only child of Liz and Phillip Ferguson, has the perfect life: a beautiful home in the country, a mother and father who adore her, friends who support her, and a menagerie of animals she loves. Then one spring morning, her mother walks out of Rebel’s life and her world will never be the same.
To add to Rebel’s family troubles, her friendly relationship with the Garret cousins on the neighboring ranch changes from an easy friendship to a serious perhaps-I’d-like-to-date you relationship. If that isn’t enough to deal with, a handsome college guy with a bad reputation takes an interest in her.
Rebel in Blue Jeans tells the story of how Rebel faces each challenge with courage and sometimes a touch of humor as she decides to do three things: One, bring her mother home where she belongs. Two, show Will and Sully Garret she isn’t interested in a serious relationship with either of them. Three, prove to the Garrets, and herself, that Rick, the cute college guy, is a gentleman. Along the way she discovers that people are not always what they seem.
