Eleven year old Polly Peabody knows her family's world famous rhubarb farm is magical The plants taste like chocolate jewels appear in the soil bugs talk to her and her best friend is a rhubarb plant named Harry But the most magical thing is that every single. Drizzle By Kathleen Van CleveM her disapproving family struggling alone over All The Usual Obstacles And Is So the usual obstacles and is so happy and finally content in her success that she is also attempting in vain to make Polly be the same type of woman Her efforts are manipulative and underhanded endanger lives and show that she doesn t understand this child that she claims to love any better than her own mother apparently understood her Polly however is the culmination of feminism in that she understands both sides She s been raised you see by both her housewife Class of 92: Out of Our League grandmother and her career minded aunt and she s empowered enough to clearly see that her choices are absolutely her own She refuses to acknowledge the compartments that make women feel compartmentalized if they choose home or career or make them feel torn if they choose both Polly simply chooses what she wants to do and is empowered to work to achieve whatever that desire is Yes her choice is life on her magical farm for now but for Polly it remains a conscious choice not a definitionMy one disappointment with this otherwise wonderful book is its secondary emphasis on secrecy The legacy that allows Polly to eventually save her farm is a deep family secret known only to one woman in aeneration This means that when her aunt the secret holder begins to work purposefully AGAINST the farm no one knows what is Portrait of a Starter: An Unhidden Story going on or why or how to fix it Polly must first struggle to learn that there is a secret then must struggle to learn all the various components of the secret then must struggle to learn the powers that she holds as the chosen one of hereneration Surprisingly in a child who has so FAR BEEN NOTABLE IN NOT ACCEPTING THE GIVEN KNOWLEDGE been notable in NOT accepting the iven knowledge her family she simply accepts at the end of the book that she too must keep everything that she has learned a secret preserving the mystery keeping her entire family in the dark about the true workings of the farm and continuing to do her own important work completely alone This is a terrible blow at the end of the book because this DOES compartmentalize Polly onto a very narrow path If she can t share the secret she can t share the labor and the labor MUST be done to ensure the health of the farm Polly can t o to college at this rate Heck she can t even o on vacation or it won t rain Not only is this development troubling in that in my personal opinion it is unethical to present a conclusion in which a child chooses to keep a major secret from a loving family but it also serves to eliminate the powerful feminist choices that Polly could have made People should cooperate with each other help each other If Polly s aunt hadn t had to keep the secret she could have taught Polly her powers long ago she could have one back to work If Polly and her aunt weren t now estranged the aunt could help Polly in the future Polly could o to college If Polly could share her secret with her very loving family they could help her with much of the infrastructure surrounding her duties she s a child after all and has to do schoolwork It was a deep disappointment after reading this wonderful book and etting to discuss the power of Polly s choices and her work with my daughter to also have to discuss with her the importance of not keeping secrets from her family Together my daughter and I spun an epilogue in which Polly realizes this crucial fact shares with her family ives her aunt the opportunity to reconcile with her and then proceeds to live the powerful life that she is capable of without any silly authoritative boundaries. Polly has to make it start raining again before it's too late Her brother's life the plants' survival and her family's future all depend on it Kathleen Van Cleve has woven an unforgettable coming of age tale with all the heart and wonder of a Roald Dahl nove. ,
