Every year, I offer a $500 scholarship to a high school student who is studying the impact of the environment on human health and well-being. The winner of last year's award, after additional research and planning, received a field trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to visit with park rangers and learn about the plants and animals that thrive there. The winner of the previous year received a $750 field trip to one of our study sites in North Carolina's Outer Banks.
Rachel Van Dyken is the author of "Ruin". It's a book about a girl who dresses up as a boy and people mistake her for one. Her story is about growing up, and how she learns to be herself.
I needed to write a literature review about Ruin and Wizard At Large books. I read Ruin with pleasure and got an A+ for my book review. Rachel Van Dyken is a wonderful writer.
