Sophie Brown may be new to chicken farming, but she's certainly an exceptional person who excels under unusual circumstances. She's a city girl trying to learn her new rural landscape after her parents inherit her great-uncle's farm. As if that wasn't hard enough, she gradually learns the farm comes with a now a scattered collection of chickens with mysterious, minor superpowers and a thieving neighbor trying to track them down. Sophie tells her story through a series of letters she writes to her dead great-uncle, abuelita, and a few others, and it reads much like a diary. She and her narration are engaging, admirable, relatable, quirky, and fun.
